Yoko Ono: Music of the Mind at the Tate Modern

The ‘Yoko Ono: Music of the Mind’ exhibition at Tate Modern, London, explores the renowned artist’s visionary work. Stepping into the exhibition space, visitors are immediately drawn to its interactive elements, which invite participation in Ono’s creative world.

Throughout the exhibition, Ono challenges traditional notions of art, encouraging viewers to engage with her vision in thought-provoking ways. From interactive installations to immersive experiences, each piece fosters a deeper connection and exploration of themes such as peace, activism, and personal transformation.

One piece that particularly stood out as I walked through the exhibition was “ADD COLOUR (REFUGEE BOAT),” a powerful representation of the global refugee crisis. As visitors enter the room, they are prompted to add colour to the walls, floor, and the boat placed in the middle of the room. This piece encourages reflection on the resilience and hope of those searching for safety and a better life.

Leaving the exhibition, I was inspired by Ono’s bold and innovative approach to art. It served as a moving reminder of the transformative power of art to provoke emotion, spark dialogue, and instigate change.
