Sean and Yoko in the 90’s. Judging by that totally whack ponytail, it’s probably Fall 1994.

"Yoko Ono, widow of John Lennon, leaves her home at the Dakota in New York on Wednesday, March 21, 1984, with son Sean, right, and Lennon’s older son Julian, left, en route to ceremonies marking the ground breaking of a section of Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles member. The section, to be called Strawberry Fields, recalls the name of one of Lennon’s songs" [X]

Yoko and her second husband Tony Cox performing Bag Piece at Tokyo’s Sogetsu Art Center in 1964. One of Yoko’s inspirations for bagism was the children’s book Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. In the story, a wise fox tells the prince that in order to understand the world, we have to look beneath the surface. "One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."

March 10th, 1967.
In response to the ban on Film No. 4, commonly known as Bottoms, Yoko, puzzled by all the fuss, told a reporter: “It’s quite harmless. There’s no murder or violence in it. Why shouldn’t it be given a certificate?”
She was mistaken for being twenty-five years old at the time, when in reality, she was actually thirty-four.

On this Mother’s Day, we should all remember our mothers by calling them and saying, “I love you.” They deserve it! After all, you probably take for granted what your mother went through. She kept you in her tummy for long months nurturing you day and night. When you started to get bigger and bigger inside her, it was hard for her to even turn over in bed to get some sleep. When you finally came out in the world, she had the big job of raising you… which she did the best she could.

When I do a show, I’m hands on. I almost do the whole thing myself. Over the course of my career I’ve been lucky to work with many creative curators. Their role is to give me protection and encouragement. Not in the sense of changing what I do, but allowing me to do what I want to do. They have helped me to understand what I like.
Alexandra Monroe gave so much love to me and my work that she made YES [Ono’s first major retrospective] very easy for me. I would sometimes wonder why she would select a particular work – but she says: “Look at this – it’s important, Yoko.” And she is often right.
Jon Hendricks [curator of Ono’s current Bilbao show] has also been very supportive – just by going to places on my behalf and saying: “Yoko doesn’t like that.”
Hans Ulrich is one of those people who jump around a lot. He flies around in his mind, just as he is always flying around the world. And when you meet that mind in transit it’s very exciting. It gives me a sense of my own power. My feeling is that Hans is not just a curator. His duty is to nurture his own knowledge and tastes as much as the artists he works with.

Yoko Ono’s appearance in Asahi Graphic magazine in mid 1974 (possibly July) during her separation with John Lennon, accompanied various poems and other literary works by her.
I think I’ve posted some (if not all) of these before, but they’re really quite stunning here all as a group.
