Yoko

Yoko Ono currently has a nine-installation interactive exhibition in Istanbul’s Sabancı University Kasa Gallery. I love interactive installations and have always been curious about Ono’s visual and multimedia work (I don’t particularly care either way about the drama and controversy of her life as John Lennon’s wife— I’m happy to separate an artist’s work from the media’s perception of her worth as a person). As it turns out Emirhan and I will be in Istanbul briefly this week, but as it’s only for a day and we have other things we need to take care of, I don’t think I’ll be able to find the time to sneak away to the Kasa Gallery. If you’re in Istanbul, though, and have either seen these installations or are planning to, drop me a line. I’d love to hear what your reactions are (and if you have photos, even better). Link
