Yoko Ono’s MoMA Wallpaper Brings Bottoms to ‘Any Receptive Surface’

Now on view at MoMA, as part of the “Pictures by Women” exhibit: Fluxus wallpaper.

Fluxus artist George Maciunas assembled the piece by repeating a still from Yoko Ono’s Film Number 4 (Bottoms), a film depicting various bottoms.

According to MoMA’s blog:

As Ono once described Film Number 4, it is “like an aimless petition signed by people with their anuses”–a collective mooning in support of the absurd. Maciunas took one of these signature back ends, possibly Ono’s own, and printed it in fashion that enabled the provocation to occupy any receptive surface.

Bold AND versatile.
