Q How long does it take to see the exhibition?
The exhibition includes 27 artworks, many of which are participatory which means you may want to spend time with them. There are also films and written texts. We recommend allowing 60 minutes to view the exhibition.

Q Will Yoko Ono be travelling to Sydney for the exhibition?
Ono, who celebrated her 80th birthday this year, will be in Sydney for brief period to oversee the installation of her exhibition. Due to competing commitments and because Ono is an octogenarian (!), she won’t be committing to any public appearances outside her sold out talk at the Sydney Opera House. We will however be sharing a recording of this talk on our Facebook page following the event. If you would like to contact Yoko directly we suggest visiting imaginepeacetower.com.

Q Are we open on Sundays and public holidays?
Yes. We are closed on Christmas Day.

Q Is the exhibition suitable for children?
Yes. However please note that some artworks show nudity and material of a sexual nature.

Q Is the exhibition wheelchair accessible?
Yes, all our exhibition spaces are fully accessible via wheelchair.

Q Can tickets be used for re-entry on the same day?
No. Each ticket admits one person, once only. There are bathrooms located inside the gallery so visitors should not need to leave and re-enter.
