The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) presents the first major survey in Australia of legendary artist, musician and activist Yoko Ono.

Sydney is the only Australian venue for 'War Is Over! (if you want it): Yoko Ono', curated specifically for the MCA. The title comes from a text work by Ono and her husband John Lennon that first appeared in 1969 across public billboards in twelve cities worldwide, including New York and London.

The exhibition encompasses five decades of practice in diverse media including eight participatory works. Themes include loss, conflict, humanity and the desire for world peace.
