"All my works are in a form of a wish. Carry on thinking about a wish, participating at the same time." -Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono's interactive artwork 'Wish Tree' (1996) has been an integral part of many of her exhibitions at museums and cultural spaces worldwide. Yoko Ono is known for inviting the public to take an active part in the making and creative process of her artwork. 'Wish Tree' invites the audience to write down their wishes on small pieces of paper and tie them on the tree branches. A collaboration between the artist and her audience is made in the creation of a living monument to all our dreams. The wishes are subsequently stored in the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland, where there already are over a million wishes collected.

Sunday December 15th we present 'Wish Tree' at Astrup Fearnley Museet. The same day we organize a family day at the museum, where children and youth can attend Christmas workshop and guided family tours. Both youth and adults are welcome to tie their dreams on Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree!

"Keep wishing. Keep smiling. Keep dreaming"
