CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITIONS INDIA PERFORMANCE
Yoko Ono is to hold her first Indian solo in January 2012 at Vadehra Gallery in New Delhi, The Times of India reported on 3 December 2011. The show will focus on performance and audience participation and include a work specially created for Indian visitors.
Yoko Ono, an avant-garde conceptual artist, has visited India with [John] Lennon before but has never exhibited in the country. Now in a show, being billed as one of the hottest events to hit the capital’s art circuit, the 78-year-old will not only bring some of her cutting-edge works but also create a special installation for India.
The show will be titled “Our Beautiful Daughters” and will run at multiple Vadehra venues in New Delhi from 12 January until 10 March 2012.
