Yoko Ono – Dream Come True
Curators: Gunnar B. Kvaran and Agustín Pérez Rubio
Water is a recurring motif in the work of Yoko Ono, and provides many metaphoric layers: the water is the main component of the human body. Buddhist philosophy compares human life with water and the human body with a container. In 1971, Ono invited a group of artists to participate in a water event, held at the Everson Museum in Syracuse. Her intention was to create collaborative works based on the water and their meanings.
Under Dream Come True, Ono convened a group of Latin American artists — Liliana Porter, Hernán Marina, Ana Gallardo, Amalia Pica, Rosângela Rennó, Runo Lagomarsino, Alexander Apóstol, Alfredo Jaar, Tania Bruguera, Teresa Margolles, Tercerunquinto, Antonio Caro — with the idea of producing a work-container able to “bring water” to people either to heal minds or to recognize their courage to protest. It can also be used specifically to a person, people or region that desperately needs water. Each work will be exhibited in the museum as part of the exhibition.
