Yoko Ono honored with Hirshhorn concert and Union Market mural

A bit of the article

WASHINGTON — You can’t write music history without Yoko Ono’s impact on The Beatles.

But the Tokyo native is more than just John Lennon’s widow; she’s a prolific creator of conceptual multimedia, blending technology, audience participation and social activism, from exhibits at New York’s Museum of Modern Art to a Golden Lion Award at the Venice Biennale.

“She’s important for many reasons,” Hirshhorn curator Mark Beasley told WTOP. “I really enjoy her generosity in making work. You might see it as extreme and minimal, but actually behind it, it’s really human. There’s a lot of heart there. … I think she creates this space in which people can engage and be creative. Part of our project is offering that to people.”

This weekend, the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden will pay tribute with a special Concert for Yoko Ono, Washington and the World from 7-10 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $25.

...

The concert event is the fourth and final entry in Hirshhorn’s summer series “Yoko Ono: Four Works for Washington and the World,” which commemorates the 10th anniversary of Ono’s Wish Tree for Washington D.C., which was planted in the sculpture garden as a gift in 2007.

Since then, summer visitors have tied nearly 80,000 handwritten wishes to the tree’s branches, which are then collected and sent to Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland.

“It’s essentially a proposition to the public, quite a generous one, to think for a moment, make a wish, write it down and tie it to the tree,” Beasley said. “Every summer, the Wish Tree opens again, in the winter it’s dormant, but it’s open to anyone to make any wish they want.”

...

Even after the Hirshhorn exhibits close, Ono’s legacy will remain with a new mural at Union Market titled “Relax. Your Heart is Stronger Than What You Think.” It’s the inaugural project of Hirshhorn in the City, an initiative to exhibit contemporary art beyond the museum walls.

My favourite thing Yoko has ever done:

Yes, she really did put 'A Single Plum Floating in Perfume, Served in a Man's Hat' in her exhibition last year.

 

That, in my book, gains her 'legendary' status.

 

Well done Yoko! john-lennon-salute_gif

I appreciate that kind of nonsense art.  Some may not realize that it's at least 100 years old now (the Dada movement began in the original Aughts if not around the fin du siècle).  Midway between then and now, we've had, for example, Salvador Dali's "Lobster Telephone" --

That could, quite possibly, be the funniest The Simpson's clip I've seen today.

Liam Gallagher writes song inspired by Yoko Ono meeting

Liam Gallagher has written a song on his album 'As You Were' which is inspired by his meeting with John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono.

The 45-year-old singer was invited by the Japanese artist-and-musician to visit her at The Dakota building in New York City at the apartment she shared with John from 1973 until he was tragically murdered outside the building's entrance in 1980.

Yoko asked Liam to come and see her after being touched that he had named his son Lennon Francis Gallagher - who was born in September 1999 to his first wife Patsy Kensit - after his hero and her spouse.

Whilst he was at her home the ex-Oasis star was fascinated by a banner written in Japanese that she had in her kitchen and once Yoko had translated the words for him Liam wrote the saying down and he has included it in his upcoming song 'I've All I Need'. In an interview on 'The Chris Moyles Show' on Radio X on Wednesday morning (10.04.17), Liam revealed: "I'll tell you an interesting fact. There's a line in there (on 'I've All I Need') that says 'I hibernate and sing, while gathering my wings.' I was over in New York once and I got a call saying, 'Yoko wants to meet you', and I just called me kid Lennon. So anyway we go to Yoko's house in the Dakota building. Cut a long story short, we go in there and in the kitchen - she invites us in and makes us a cup of tea - and she's got this banner, massive banner round the kitchen, and I said, 'Oh what does that mean?' And she goes, 'Oh John asked the same question when we went to Japan to meet my parents.' Anyway it says 'while I've been hibernating, I've been gathering my wings', and it was when he stopped making music. So I thought, write that down. So anyway, years go by, I've been trying to get it in to a song, could never get it in, and then it happened on that."

After the birth of his and Yoko's only child, son Sean, John took a hiatus from music from October 1975 until October 1980 when he released his comeback single '(Just Like) Starting Over' followed by the album 'Double Fantasy', which came out in November the same year, just one month before he was killed at the age of 40.

Before Liam's meeting with Yoko, the global icon had sent the 'Wonderwall' singer and Patsy a package of baby clothes and a card congratulating them on the arrival of their son, who is now making a name for himself as a model.

Previously revealing Yoko's gift, Liam - who telephoned Yoko to thank her for the present - shared: "The card said, 'To Lennon, welcome to the world, love, love, love Yoko 99'. I was freaked. Then a big box of baby clothes came from New York."

Keep those phrases and bits of music around. They just might turn into a song.
