Yoko Ono's Meltdown
I sat down with two of the founding members of the Guerrilla Girls, pseudonyms Frida Kahlo and Käthe Kollwitz, during the first days of Yoko Ono's Meltdown and we spoke about the current state of feminism and the branding within the art world.
In truth, Yoko Ono has a vast and somewhat unnerving back-catalogue. Some of it ("Cut Piece") demonstrates real genius, while other pieces (many of the arty statements she makes on Twitter, for example) can feel a tad trite and vacuous. But in the presence of the work itself, much of it performance art that can only be experienced in the moment, one feels somewhat overwhelmed.
