Who Is Yoko Ono?
Ono was born into a wealthy family in Japan and grew up mostly in Tokyo, where she attended an exclusive school. As a child she wrote poetry and plays and received classical training in piano and voice. For the next three years, she studied writing and music at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, though she struggled to find an artistic niche and never graduated. In Ono married Ichiyanagi Toshi divorced , a Japanese composition student through whom she began to forge a connection to the New York City avant-garde art world. Painting to Be Stepped On , for instance, was a canvas upon which audiences were invited to tread. Many of the works she created during this time existed primarily as written instructions for others to carry out or, in some cases, merely to muse upon. After a sojourn to Japan in —64, during which time she married filmmaker Anthony Cox divorced , Ono continued to build her reputation in the United States. For the performance piece Cut Piece , she sat passively while an audience, at her invitation, used scissors to cut off parts of the dress she wore; with its connotations of sexual violence, the work was later recognized as a landmark of feminist art. That same year she met Lennon, a member of the Beatles , at an exhibition of her work at a London gallery.
