Speeches by John Dunbar (former owner of the Indica Gallery) & Alan Bookbinder (Master of Downing College, Cambridge)
Free and open to all, refreshments will be served.
Showcasing Yoko Ono’s work in the city of Cambridge for the first time ever, the multi-site exhibition YOKO ONO: LOOKING FOR... celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Ono’s first visit to Cambridge and her debut public concert with John Lennon at Cambridge University’s Lady Mitchell Hall on 2 March 1969. The exhibition inaugurates with the unveiling of a historic plaque in the foyer of the Lady Mitchell Hall on 2 March 2019, which will commemorate the event and preserve a hidden gem of Cambridge’s social history. Also in the foyer will be the live recording of the concert ‘Cambridge 1969’ for visitors to listen to until the end of the year.
The work becomes a reality only when others realize the work.
– Yoko Ono, 1966
