AN INTRODUCTION TO YOKO ONO
YOKO ONO is a multi-media artist who constantly challenges the traditional boundaries of sculpture, painting, theatre and music.Her groundbreaking conceptual and performance pieces in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, experimental films, solo music, and music done in association with John Cage and Ornette Coleman, among others, and then a remarkable collaboration with John Lennon from the time they met until his death, and international one-woman shows and retrospectives during the 1980’s and 1990’s illustrate her varied career.Into the new millennium, Yoko’s creative influence and prolific artistic output continues to inspire new generations.
Reflecting on her reputation for being outrageous, Yoko smiles and says, “I do have to rely on my own judgement, although to some people my judgement seems a little out of sync. I have my own rhythm and my own timing, and that’s simply how it is.”
