Mend Piece for the World: A Participation Art Work by Yoko Ono

July 20 – 21, 2018

Participants were invited to sit at a table with others and mend broken ceramic cups and plates with glue, tape, and twine. Yoko Ono asks us to “Mend carefully. Think of mending the world at the same time.” This participatory work, first conceptualized in 1966 and recreated many times since (including here at BMCM+AC in 2002) was open to all with materials and supplies provided.
