YOKO ONO (1933, Tokyo, Japan)

Yoko Ono is one of the pioneers of the Conceptual Art and one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. From the mid-fifties she moved to New York, where she took part in the vibrant art scene that included, among others, the composer John. In 1960, with Young, Yoko Ono gave birth to a series of meetings in her loft near Canal Street, attended not only by young artists and musicians like Jasper Johns, George Maciunas, Robert Rauschenberg, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Peggy Guggenheim and Isamu Noguchi. Since the beginning of her career, the work of Yoko Ono has never stopped to influence the following generations of artists. Her commitment to peace, with her husband John Lennon, has never ceased. Lives and works in New York, USA.
