This banner and seal works were originally produced at an August 2011 calligraphy performance by an internationally-renowned artist Yoko Ono, at Mori Art Museum's "MAM ART COURSE 2011, No.13 :Yoko Ono— The Road of Hope." In sync with the title "Roppongi Art Night 2018: The City Dreams of Art, " the work will remind us of the importance of creating the peaceful world through having a "dream."


Yoko Ono

Artist, Musician, Peace Activist
Yoko Ono is an artist whose thought provoking work challenges people's understanding of art and the world around them. From the beginning of her career, she has been a conceptualist whose work has encompassed a number of performances, instructions, film, music, and writing.
Ono was born in Tokyo in 1933, and moved to New York in 1953, following her studies in philosophy in Japan. By the late 50s, she had become part of the city’s vibrant avant-garde activities. Her conceptual works Instruction Paintings , Cut Piece , The Stone and the book Grapefruit are world widely known. In 1969, together with John Lennon, she realized the performance
Bed-In and the worldwide “War Is Over! (if you want it)” campaign for peace.

Ono has had numerous exhibitions, including traveling exhibitions organized by the Museum of Modern Art Oxford and the Japan Society in New York. In 2009, she received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement from the Venice Biennale. In 2011, she had several exhibitions including a solo show at the Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, and is being honored with the 8th Hiroshima Art Prize. She has been working tirelessly for peace with her “IMAGINE PEACE” campaign since 2007.
