Honoring Yoko Ono

In celebration of BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH: The Work and Music of Yoko Ono, the one-night tribute taking place tonight at the LA Phil's Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, we are featuring this 1965 Minoru Niizuma photograph of Ono performing her seminal "Cut Piece" on stage at Carnegie Hall on March 21 of that same year. The work is described in MoMA's essential 2015 exhibition catalogue, Yoko Ono: One Woman Show: "The artist, wearing her 'best suit,' knelt silently at the entrance of the stage and placed a pair of tailor's scissors in front of her. At her invitation, the audience members came up and cut off portions of her clothing, after which they exited the stage with the scraps of fabric." More than five decades later, the piece is more resonant, and haunting, than ever.
