T.V. to See the Sky - Inspired by Yoko Ono’s work, SKY T.V. to Be Held Online on June 21

T.V. to See the Sky - Inspired by Yoko Ono’s work, SKY T.V.

* This program will be streamed online, via Zoom.
* Advance booking is required.

This event is inspired by Yoko Ono’s SKY T.V. in 1967 for the Lisson Gallery, which she described as “a T.V. just to see the sky.” It broadcasts a live video feed of the sky from above the building where it was installed—a way to bring the sky inside, even if a space lacked windows. In collaboration with Yoko Ono, the Getty Research Institute and the Feminist Center for Creative Work will present a 24-hour video streaming of the sky via Zoom. A network of international institutions will participate in a live broadcast of the sky transmitted to audiences at home.

At a time of profound revolution and reflection, a time of restricted travel but great desire for connection, we seek to draw upon Ono’s invocation of the sky as a space of generative possibility and renewal. The event takes place on June 21, 2021 to coincide with and celebrate the Solstice and the Strawberry Moon Eclipse (June 20-24).
