Turkish Media Spotlight: Yoko Ono in Istanbul

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

    Hello Melissa,
    I love Yoko Ono’s art and I’ve just have found this page by you and I hope ypu don’t mind if i ask you a favor: I love to have all kind of Yoko things specially related with her art works, so that’s why I dare to ask you if it is possible for you to buy and send me posters, catalogues, postcards or anything printed or done in relationship with this exhibition in Istanbul. Of course I’ll send you the money in advance.
    I’m living in Madrid (Spain)
    Thank you very much.

    Sorry, Jorge – I just checked out the web site, and it looks like the exhibition is finished already. I don’t know if it went to another museum or not.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.
