Overview

YES Yoko Ono accompanies the first major museum retrospective of the work of this pioneering avant garde artist. In her prolific 40-year career, Ono has embraced a wide range of mediums, defying traditional boundaries and creating new forms of artistic expression. This volume is the first comprehensive art book devoted to her challenging and influential work.

Yoko Ono has created revolutionary forms of music, film, and the visual arts since the 1960s, when she emerged as an avant-garde force in New York, Tokyo, and London. This richly illustrated book includes essays by eminent international scholars and critics that not only explore Ono's life and career, including her contributions to the Fluxus movement and Conceptual art, but also enrich our understanding of her complex role as artist, filmmaker, poet, composer, performance artist, activist, and rock star. An anthology of Ono's writings and an illustrated chronology further mark this book as the most extensive survey ever published on the art and life of Yoko Ono.

The book includes a CD with new music by Yoko Ono, performed by Ono, her son Sean Lennon, and others.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It has been said that Yoko Ono's worst career move was marrying John Lennon. Though it is true that being a "Beatle Wife" afforded her a world of opportunity and wealth, it became easy for critics (and more so the general public) to disdain her beyond the bleeding-edge art. This catalog, which accompanies an extensive traveling exhibition tracing 40 years of Ono's work, attempts to carve out her rightful place as a pioneer in the avant-garde of the 20th-century art world. Sections are devoted to her filmmaking, activism, and music, but the core of the catalog focuses on her work as a key member of the Conceptual art movement and Fluxus. Twenty years after the death of Lennon, Ono's work must be judged in the context of his inescapable presence. Ono's music, which remains challenging even given today's electronica and trance artists, is represented by three new compositions on an accompanying CD. Highly recommended for larger collections of 20th-century art.--Martin R. Kalfatovic, Smithsonian Institution Libs., Washington, DC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Brian Raftery
Yes is perhaps the fairest assessment yet of Ono's lengthy and influential career in conceptual art, chronicling her forays into film, music, and multimedia with sharp insight and extensive documentation. (Hindsight helps: What was exotic or eccentric in 1969 now seems prescient.)
