On what would have been the couple's 49th wedding anniversary we are very proud to announce a major new exhibition, telling the story of John Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon’s profound personal and creative chemistry at the Museum of Liverpool.
'Double Fantasy - John & Yoko', from 18 May 2018 to 22 April 2019, celebrates the meeting of two of the world’s most creative artists who expressed their deep and powerful love for one another through their art, music and film. They also used their fame and influence to campaign for peace and human rights across the world, transforming not only their own lives, but art, music and activism forever.
Yoko Ono Lennon said:
I am so happy and grateful that we are having our 'Double Fantasy - John & Yoko' show in Liverpool. This is where John was born and I know John would be very happy too.
We were a very simple couple just loving each other every day and I just wanted to show the simple truth of us.
In our personal life we were pretty simple people, and we made all sorts of things with love for each other. Everything was made out of love.
We found that we were both very strongly interested in world peace. I feel John and I are still working together. I always feel his warmth next to me.
Through interviews, quotes and lyrics, the story of their personal and creative relationship, along with their political activism and peace campaigning, will be explored in their own words for the first time. From the intimate to the iconic, the exhibition brings together unmissable objects and artworks.
This exhibition has been made possible with the kind permission of Yoko Ono Lennon.
