Yoko Ono : One Woman Show, 1960-1971
'a belated and jubilant rectification of the historical record, and a victory lap for an artist laughed at for too long' - The Guardian
Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971 examines the beginnings of Ono's extensive career, demonstrating her pioneering role in visual art, performance and music during the 1960s and early 1970s. This companion book to a MoMA retrospective of her work covers her career from her early performance series with La Monte Young in her Chambers Street loft to her global War is Over! campaign in 1969 and her unsanctioned one woman show at The Museum of Modern Art.
The publication evaluates the broader cultural context of Ono's early work and features five sections reflecting her geographic locations during this period and the corresponding evolution of her artistic practice. Each chapter includes an introduction written by a guest scholar, artwork descriptions, new interviews with key figures from the time, and a selection of primary documents culled from newspapers, magazines and journals.
