He noted that her conceptual approach was made more acceptable when white male artists like Joseph Kosuth and Lawrence Weiner came in and "did virtually the same things" she did, and that her take also has a poetic and lyrical side that sets it apart from the work of other conceptual artists. Ono would enact many of the book's scenarios as performance pieces throughout her career, which formed the basis for her art exhibitions, including the highly publicized retrospective exhibitionThis Is Not Here in at the Everson Museum in Syracuse, New York that was nearly closed when it was besieged by excited Beatles fans, who broke several of the art pieces and flooded the toilets.

The screen is divided into four almost equal sections by the elements of the gluteal cleft and the horizontal gluteal crease. The soundtrack consists of interviews with those who are being filmed, as well as those considering joining the project. Inthe watch manufacturing company Swatch produced a limited edition watch that commemorated this film. Another example of Ono's participatory art was her Wish Tree project, in which a tree native to the installation site is installed. Her Wish Piece had the following instructions:.
Other installation locations include London;  St. Louis;  Washington, D. Ono installed a billboard on U. Route 41 in Fort Myers to promote the show and peace. When the exhibit closed, wishes that had been placed on the installed Wish Trees were sent to the Imagine Peace Tower in Iceland and added to the millions of wishes already there.
One of two pieces Ono installed as part of the Folkestone TriennialEarth Peace originally consisted of many parts and appeared in many locations and media around Folkestoneincluding posters, stickers, billboards and badges. These include an inscribed stone, a flag - which is flown on an annual basis on International Peace Day and a beacon of light installed on the dome roof of The Grand in Folkestone Leas. Ono's beacon flashes a morse code message, "Earth Peace", across the English Channel.
The second of Ono's Folkestone Triennial pieces and now also on loan to the town as part of the Folkestone Artworks collection, Skyladder is displayed in two locations - on a high wall of the Quarterhouse bar and in the staircase of the Folkestone public library. Skyladder takes the form of an artistic 'instruction' or invitation to the people of Folkestone and beyond. The instruction reads: "Audience should bring a ladder they like.
Colour it. Word it. Take pictures of it. Keep adding things to it. And send it as a postcard to a friend" . InOno created the piece Arising in Venice. When asked for the resemblance between the naming of her record Rising and this piece, Ono responded: " Rising was telling all people that it is time for us to rise and fight for our rights.
But in the process of fighting together, women are still being treated separately in an inhuman way. It weakens the power of men and women all together. I hope Arising will wake up Women Power, and make us, men and women, heal together.
In OctoberOno unveiled her first permanent art installation in the United States; the collection is located in Jackson Park, Chicago and promotes peace.
The work comprises a white room with a white rowing boat in it, which were both covered by messages and drawings from members of the audience throughout the festival.

John Lennon once described his wife as "the world's most famous unknown artist: everybody knows her name, but nobody knows what she does". At the suggestion of Ono's live-in companion at the time, interior decorator Sam Havadtoyshe recast her old pieces in bronze after some initial reluctance. There seemed like a shimmering air in the 60s when I made these pieces, and now the air is bronzified.
Now it's the 80s, and bronze is very 80s in a way — solidity, commodity, all of that. For someone who went through the 60s revolution, there has of course been an incredible change. I call the pieces petrified bronze. That freedom, all the hope and wishes are in some ways petrified. YES refers to the title of a sculptural work by Yoko Ono, shown at Indica Gallery, London: viewers climb a ladder to read the word "yes", printed on a small canvas suspended from the ceiling.
