The New South Wales government has secured an exhibition of work by Yoko Ono to be exhibited at the MCA in Sydney. The show will be part of the 2013/2014 Sydney International Art Series; an initiative that each Summer brings the work of ‘big name’ international artists to NSW (this year’s iteration features works by Francis Bacon and Anish Kapoor at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and MCA respectively). Taking its name from a series of billboard works that Ono made with her husband John Lennon in 1969, the exhibition ‘War is Over! (if you want it)’ will be opened by the artist next November.
