YOKO ONO: T.V. TO SEE THE SKY
Inspired by Yoko Ono’s work SKY T.V.
21.6, beginning at 2.42 pm Central European Time (UTC +1) and continuing for 24 hours
(Svenska) Online / Mellanrummet
To experience the work you need to register on Zoom via this link or via the QR code below.
This event is inspired by Yoko Ono’s second conceptualization of SKY T.V. in 1967 for the Lisson Gallery, which she described as “a T.V. just to see the sky. Different channels for different skies, high-up sky, low sky, etc.” SKY T.V. 1966 (furniture piece) was a video sculpture described by Ono as “a closed circuit T.V. set up in the gallery for looking at 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 as well as a territory beyond the reach of capital and ownership. The event takes place on June 21, 2021 to coincide with and celebrate the Solstice and the Strawberry Moon Eclipse in USA (June 20–24).
The work T.V. to See the Sky can also be experienced at Malmö Konsthall 21 June 2.42 pm–5 pm and 22 June 11.00 am–2.42 pm.

PRIDE-EXHIBITION WITH MALMÖ KULTURSKOLA
24.6 – 22.8
During the spring, Malmö Kulturskola has arranged three popular Pride courses, Kreativ Pride (Creative Pride), for young people aged 11–16 at Malmö Konsthall. The program have been directed to young people with an interest in LGBTQ issues, with the aim of counteracting exclusion and giving young people the opportunity to meet, socialize and create together.
During the courses, conversations about LGBTQ rights, gender norms, identity, Pride and equal rights have been combined with creating art affiliated with these themes. The participants have, among other things, painted, printed their own t-shirts, photographed, created face masks and flags with a Pride theme.
During the Pride week, the works created by the participants will be shown in The Workshop at Malmö Konsthall. The participants have created their work under the guidance of Joakim Danell.
