Yoko Ono answers your questions every Friday on Twitter & Facebook.

Albert Murrian
Oh Yoko! I’m so glad you’re back. Your fans have missed your weekly Q and A. How have you been? Busy, I’m sure. Congratulations on your new exhibit. I think you are the greatest artist in the world! Peace and Love, Al

I feel so lucky that the reviews were very good. I was concerned that they may not be. I didn’t want the two very intellegent and sensitive curators to get flack again! They deserved better.

Daniel Fedele
We missed you Yoko, glad to have you back… my question is, what answers have you found while you were gone?

I missed you, too.

Susan Marie
How did it go at the MoMA?

So far it’s going amazingly well.

Steve Arthur
Yoko, what memories did the MoMA show stir in you?

That I forgot to tell John many of the pieces I had done before I met him.

Joe Cameringo
Dear Yoko, Congratulations on the opening of your beautiful MOMA exhibit! We came from Columbus, Ohio to be there for the Sunday opening; it was well worth our travels!! Do you have a piece at your exhibit that you are proudest to display? Yours. Love.

I think the fact that I did a conceptual show in 1971 was fun for me. I remembered enjoying the experience all to myself!

Adam James
So pleased you’re back. I’ve ordered your grapefruit limited edition book from MOMA. I’ve always wanted a 1964 first edition so this is the next best thing.

The printed things in it are something that was only in the original, original book so even I want to purchase a few and cherish them.

Rob Thomas
Will there be any concerts as part of your MOMA show? (Congrats, by the way!) And, if yes, will we get enough notice so that those of us from far away can be there to share such a special event with you and your amazing band and your amazing fans? The picture Sean posted of the two of you on your way to the opening reception was so touching. It made me smile.

I will find out. Probably sometime in the Summer we can do a little thing.

Vanessa Clark
Hi, Yoko Ono. Congrats on your MoMA exhibit! I was wondering, I can imagine that everything in the exhibit you have a special connection with, but of them all which part of the exhibit do you love the most and feel best represents you as an artist?

The memory of how I did the conceptual MOMA show in 1971 does still give me a tickle…

Cindy Sams
Hi Yoko! Do you have a favorite Broadway play? Have a wonderful day!!

The one we did ‘LENNON’ was pretty good.

Seth Abramson
Do you ever get worked up? If so what’s your favorite method for calming the mind?

Take a walk.

Gord McDougall
I was delighted to catch a glimpse of you in the montage on David Letterman’s last show. Do you have any thoughts or memories about Dave? It’s been a sad and wonderful week! Thanks, Yoko!

Just after I did my performance, he cracked a joke in the sweetest way. I then realized how he kept his staying power. With his sense of humour. That totally made me respect him. What a great guy he is. I hope he will get tired of not doing a show and come back soon! …yoko


~Expressed Poet~ ‏@LonelyLiliana
Your exhibition at MoMa looks truly fascinating & very nostalgic! What has been your favourite part about it all?

The fact that you are there.

lem ‏@LimTimbo
Do you believe in reincarnation?
I think so.

Matt Palazzolo ‏@MattPalazzolo
If the pain of loss never leaves us, then how do we become it’s friend?

The pain of loss can be still there at the same time as the joy of having had such a great experience is getting bigger and bigger…..

Lee Cripps ‏@TheCriptykLee
Do you think the artworld is now more supportive of female feminist art than it was when you originally did Cut Piece?

I hope so.

finkelpearl ‏@finkelpearl
How is Kyoko and should she still not worry?

Kyoko is a very strong and intellegent woman. She is being a great mother to two children, a girl and a boy who love her very deeply. They both know how lucky they are to have Kyoko as their mother. As her mother, I am very proud of her.

steven ‏@StvnRay
I love your performance of We Are All Water on the Dick Cavett show. Is that the only time you and Shirley MacLaine met?

No. we met a few times. I love all her books.

Bushrod Sinclair ‏@BushrodSinclair
How can art save the world?

Art means creativity. We will put together all of our creativity and make a great world. Yes, we will!

葉子 ‏@Domiko41115
I don’t like people. I think maybe hating people means hating myself. why so hard to love myself?

I don’t believe you hate people. You are just scared of loving them. The same goes for your feeling about yourself. You don’t hate yourself. You are just scared of not liking yourself. Blow a kiss to yourself in the mirror every day for three months and you will start to think differently.

Dean Littner ‏@DeanLittner
What is the most recent and brightest surprise life has given you?

You know the answer! The MOMA show!

sonia ‏@sonzzxo
How do you define “happiness”? Xx

When you yourself did something you thought you could never do but you did!!!

  4. joseph martin says:

    Joseph Martin john is a light that will never go out for all you need is love will continue to feed this light
    he was a poet, songwriter, composer, a father, a champion for peace but most of all he was just a man. unlike paul m. he could feel and write a…bout pain and longing and reach the depths of dispair and somehow it was beautiful Help i need somebody, so i sing a song of love for julia, mother you had me but i never had you, women you understand the little child inside a man, i was dreaming in the past and my heart was beating fast, if you want money for people with minds that hate all i can tell you brother you’ll have to wait, war is over if you want it, no need for greed or hungar a brotherhood of man,but most of all IN MY LIFE I LOVE YOU MORE
    happy birthday john you are loved and i and millions more will miss you

  5. Felipe says:

    Yoko, your message is beautiful and we still believe in Peace.

    Here in South America we fight everyday for our beliefs, our ideals, our peace motives and for the beauty of life.

    Sometimes is very hard to swim against the currents, against over consumption, against the media, against the powerful and their money.

    But when i saw you and your willpower to keep screaming for peace and love for everyone, i feel alive now and i’ll keep yelling and working to build a better world for us all.

    Thank you Yoko. Mata ne!

    Felipe Nadeau.

  6. Shrujana says:

    • Yoko Ono says:

      Hi Jen! It’s nice that you participated in the scream piece and screamed. Your scream joined all the other screams of that piece performed in MOMA, and is sending out a strong vibration and making a strong statement to the world. love, yoko

    Thanks,

    Kallie

  12. Sonia says:

    Thank you for the answers that you shared to me especially about questions related when you were expecting a baby with John.. One of my favorites is you are craving meat and cabbage and about morning sickness.. hope if you don’t mind I could post some questions that was bugging in my head. it is all about Sean when he was not yet born (I mean inside your womb)… again thank you…
