Cambridge Festival of Ideas logo

This exhibition at Cambridge's Ruskin Gallery explores themes of violence and healing, comprising two participatory installations: in ARISING (2013/2019), featuring the namesake film, the walls will be gradually covered by the submitted testimonials in response to an open call by the artist for women to send in a testament of harm inflicted upon them for simply being a woman, whilst Mend Piece (1966/2019) will invite visitors to ‘mend’ broken pieces of porcelain as a metaphor for individual participation in collective memory and by way of mending the world together. This exhibition is part of the Cambridge-wide exhibition YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… taking place at the Heong Gallery, Alison Richard Building, Lady Mitchell Hall, Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge Junction and public sites across the city, running through to 31 December 2019.

Exhibition curated by Gabriella Daris.

Exhibition open: Monday-Friday 10am-4.30pm from 3 October-1 November 2019.

Private View: Thursday 3 October, 5-9pm, performance of Cut Piece (1964/2019) starts at 6pm.

As part of the Cambridge-wide exhibition YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR… there will also be a symposium on 3 October, for more information please email gallery@dow.cam.ac.uk.
