Though probably best known to the wide wide world as the wife of John Lennon, Yoko Ono is in her own right an artist whose work has inspired a whole new generation of avant gardists. Ono’s Cut Piece, above, was first performed in 1964 and is meant to be a symbol of unity, love and feminism. The work has been staged multiple times, in cities across the world. Ono still lives in the Dakota in New York City, outside of which Lennon was shot in 1980.
