London’s prestigious Serpentine Gallery is featuring a new exhibition by Yoko Ono called ‘To The Light’. The exhibition includes a dramatic interactive work made from 40 sheets of clear Perspex®. The central work in the show is Yoko Ono’s piece entitled AMAZE, 1971, a large maze constructed of clear Perspex®. Occupants can see out and viewers can see in as visitors participate in this interactive artwork. The material, made by Lucite International and supplied by Perspex Distribution Limited, offers exceptional light transmission and provides the ideal clarity for the artwork. Curated by Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist, the Serpentine exhibition reflects upon the enormous impact that Yoko Ono has made on contemporary art. To the Light is her first exhibition in a London public institution in over a decade, the Serpentine show will fill the entire gallery space and represent the highlight of the exhibition programme for 2012. The exhibition runs 19 June-9 September 2012. Image: Yoko Ono
