Interventions/2: Films by Yoko Ono

The Georgian House Museum

Saturday 28 September 2019 – Tuesday 31 December 2019
Opening Hours: Sat-Tue, 11am - 4pm

Interventions/2 is a series of avant-garde films by artist and activist, Yoko Ono. The films will play in rooms throughout the Georgian House.

The films include Cut Piece (1964/5), Eyeblink (1966), Freedom (1971), Fly (1970 directed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono) and Sky TV (1966/2019).

Arising – a more recent work addressing the abuse of women will also feature within the exhibition. It was first exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2013.

As part of the show, we invite visitors to write their personal wishes for peace and tie them to a tree branch. Wish Trees have been an integral part to many of Ono’s exhibitions around the world.

This exhibition is the first time that Yoko Ono has done a solo show in Bristol. Interventions/2 is curated by Jimmy Galvin, an artist, composer and curator based in Bristol.

We have partnered with Next Link and SAFE Link as part of this exhibition. Survivors who have used these services have written about their experiences of abuse and their commentaries will be on display as part of Arising.

The exhibition contains themes that some people may find distressing and some of the films include nudity.
