The Moscow Museum of Modern Art presents for the first time in Russia a large-scale project of Yoko Ono’s art featuring her legendary textual «Instructions», reenactments of the artist’s classical performances and her video art. The show acts as a prelude to the celebration of the MMOMA anniversary and opens as a part of the International Festival-School of Contemporary Art «Territory». The Ruarts Foundation is the partner of the project.
The project «Sky Is Always Clear» will feature the reenactments of Yoko Ono’s classical performances, her video art, as well as her oeuvre «Water Event» (1971) re-created by contemporary Russian artists: Olga Kroiter, Ivan Novikov, Maxim Spivakov, Anna Titova, Stas Shuripa, Sveta Shuvaeva. The exhibition comprises an interactive project «Arising» dealing with discrimination in society and inspired by Ono’s public letter, where she calls women to write in their native language about any case of moral, physical or any other kind of violence and to send along a photo of their eyes. Texts and photos thus collected form the part of the MMOMA display; the project was realized in 2016, in collaboration with Reykjavik Art Museum.
