Featuring nearly 200 works divided into several thematic sections, including installations, objects, films, drawings, photographs, text, audio, and documentation of past performances, Yoko Ono. Half-A Wind Show—A Retrospective presents a comprehensive overview of the manifold output of this pioneering conceptual and performance artist.
A nine-screen multichannel video installation by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, The Visitors (2012) documents a musical performance staged at historic Rokeby Farm in upstate New York. Kjartansson assembled a group of friends to help him produce this work, including several musicians from his hometown of Reykjavik.
This major retrospective covers every period of Georges Braque’s artistic career, from Fauvism to his final works that methodically explored the still-life and landscape genres, culminating in a dazzling series of large studio spaces and birds. The exhibition also focuses on the highlights of his career, such as his involvement with Cubism, the 1920s Canéphores paintings, and the last landscapes that Nicolas de Staël so fervently admired.
