Yoko Ono became instantly, globally famous when she appeared at the side of John Lennon at the height of his fame with The Beatles. The Beatles, Lennon, were epically revered. Yoko Ono was something new. They were pop. She was Dada. A challengingly conceptual artist.

With a personal history few knew or understood. Then came life and death – Lennon’s. Her own remarkable life in art and activism. Peace activism above all. At almost 80, Yoko Ono’s still performing, with Sonic Youth and much more. And still challenging.

This hour, On Point: a conversation with Yoko Ono.
