Yoko Ono, Dream Come True
The Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires —MALBA— presents the first-ever Yoko Ono retrospective in Argentina, with the title Dream Come True.

Curators Gunnar B. Kvaran and Agustín Pérez Rubio talk about Ono’s Instructions, in development by the artist over more than sixty years. In her Instructions, the artist reduces art to its idea and makes it possible for audiences to become part of the work’s physical and conceptual evolution.

This exhibition resulted from an invitation by the museum for its 15th anniversary. Pérez Rubio comments that this invitation was extended to Yoko Ono because of the social and political values and commitments she has maintained, both in aesthetic and living terms, which match the museum’s mission and objectives.
