Exploring a Career Before, and Beyond, ‘John and Yoko’

In 1968, Kevin Concannon was a 12-year-old Beatles fan when an avant-garde artist named Yoko Ono started appearing in press stories linking her with John Lennon. “It was my first exposure ever to a real live artist, and especially a real live avant-garde conceptual artist,” recalled Dr. Concannon, who has a doctorate in art history from Virginia Commonwealth University and is now the director of the School of Visual Arts at Virginia Tech.
He retained his boyhood interest in Ms. Ono, eventually conceiving of an exhibition that explores her work as an artist and a peace activist, both alone and in collaboration with Mr. Lennon.The show, “Yoko Ono Imagine Peace: Featuring John and Yoko’s Year of Peace,” was curated with John Noga, then a graduate student. It is now at the University Art Gallery in Stony Brook University’s Staller Center for the Arts. (Like Dr. Concannon, the art gallery’s director, Rhonda Cooper, is an admitted Beatles “diehard,” she said.)

Yoko Ono opens up about life, as late hubby Lennon's artwork comes to Princeton this weekend

Yoko Ono has become iconic in her own right. From dance clubs to the lounge chairs of Baby Boomers, her name is known in every country of the world.I spoke with the legendary 78-year-old proponent of peace and love just prior to the opening of an exhibit of her late husband John Lennon’s art work in Princeton.Each day, she goes about her business of sharing her philosophies and John Lennon’s messages. Talking with her is like meeting your best friend’s best friend for the first time: only briefly unfamiliar.In Yoko Ono’s office in New York City, callers on hold listen to her singing from a cut on her own album. Her voice is small but imperative with lessons she wants to offer. It is at once recognizably a musically educated voice.She is candid and completely honest. There’s never a hint of superiority, of elitism or boredom, although she has been asked the same questions, a million times over. She doesn’t pander, pontificate or condescend.
