Yoko OnoThe Serpentine Gallery presents a major exhibition of work by celebrated artist Yoko Ono as part of the London 2012 Festival. The exhibition will include SMILE, a large-scale participatory project that invites people to upload and send images of their smiles in order to create a global collection. The exhibition will feature new and exciting works, many of which will be seen by UK audience for the first time. Ono has made a huge impact on contemporary art whilst working as an artist, film-maker, poet, musician, writer and peace activist over the past 50 years. She is renowned for her boundary defying works of art and this showcase of her finest work should be a big hit with the London art scene.

 

About Serpentine Gallery

Found in the middle of leafy Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, there are two galleries that go by the name of The Serpentine, the original Serpentine Gallery, established in 1970, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, a 5 minute walk away across The Serpentine Bridge, was added in 2013.
