CONCEPTUAL artist Yoko Ono’s 60-year career is being honoured in a major Spanish art exhibition.

The Guggenheim Bilbao is hosting a retrospective of the pioneering 81-year-old’s work.

An immersive experience, visitors enter the exhibition through a beaded curtain sculpture and are brought immediately to her Painting To Be Stepped On, which featured in Ono’s first solo show in New York in 1961.

The iconic Tokyo-born artist works with a variety of expressive media including performance, experimental cinema, literature and music.

Beatle John Lennon – Ono’s third husband – labelled her ‘the world’s most famous unknown artist’.
The exhibition runs until September 4
