The culmination of the Everson Museum of Art’s 50th anniversary year, YOKO ONO: REMEMBERING THE FUTURE situates the groundbreaking conceptual artist’s landmark 1971 exhibition at the Everson (her first solo museum show) within her enduring artistic work devoted to healing human connections and exposing social and political injustices. The survey spans more than six decades, bringing together significant works in film, music, performance, and visual art that are presented both inside and outside the museum building. From germinal early works to recent, large-scale installations, REMEMBERING THE FUTURE traces Ono’s experimental approach to engaging audiences as a means of contributing to a more accepting and peaceful world.
Late Night Space Force features new work by Adam Milner that draws upon emerging NASA technology, the aesthetics of science and history museums, and the Moon’s presence in our daily lives through popular culture as a way to examine the Moon as a central figure in modern life. From late night talk shows to government and corporate space agencies, the Moon’s presence in our cultural landscape is the underpinning for Milner’s investigation into how our romantic attachment to the Moon so quickly slips into physical conquest.
