New York’s MoMa are to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Yoko Ono’s iconic Morning Piece performance with a special exhibit, featuring a DJ set from FLAT WHITE aka Virgil Abloh and the only Blood Orange live performance currently scheduled for this summer. Morning Piece was first performed by Ono in Tokyo in 1964, and again on the roof of her apartment building at 87 Christopher Street in September 1965, and consisted of Ono selling artworks with typewritten pieces of paper attached to glass and other materials. Each specified a future date and a particular period of morning. Ono would inform buyers, “You can see the sky through it,” and offer them the possibility of possessing something intangible: a future morning. The 50th Anniversary celebration, entitled Morning Peace 2015, will take place from 4:30 to 8:00 AM in the Agnes Gund Garden Lobby and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at the MoMa, all attendees and participants are being urged to use to hashtag #YokoOnoPeace. For more information and the opportunity to buy tickets, go to MoMa.org.
