ARTYFACTS: Yoko Ono – Baltic Centre

Yoko Ono – Baltic Centre

Unedited outpourings from the Ono one.Would this show exist without her knowing John Lennon? I doubt it. The drawings are second rate, and there’s dozens of the damn things but it’s the banality of the umbrellas, stepladders and three piles of earth that make you suspicious. First pile is labelled ‘women subjected to domestic violence’, the next ‘women forced into mad houses’ and the third ‘women subjected to elder abuse’. They should have had a fourth ‘women subjected to crass art’.

Knowing John Lennon??
Crass? Did you speak with the artist?
The art did it's job now, did it not?

Is speaking with the artist a necessary condition for having an opinion on their art - I think not.

And no it didn't - that was my point?

I understood Yoko to have been an established artist before she met John Lennon!
