ART-3910: Approximately Infinite Universe: the Art of Yoko Ono

Approximately Infinite Universe will illuminate the life and work of Yoko Ono, from her early multimedia paintings and performative works with Fluxus, to her written work and musical projects in order to elucidate and elevate this strong and often misunderstood artist. Yoko Ono may be one of the most obscured and maligned artists and figures of the 20th century, due in part to her association with John Lennon, but this course will aim to reclaim and resituate Ono as one of the most challenging, intriguing, and important artists in contemporary art. We will observe Howson’s art constantly questioned the norm, bridged the East and West, and was an early advocate of feminist ideas, all while becoming a powerful voice for change and peace. Yoko Ono continues to be an inspirational artist to this day and we will examine her legacy both in art and music. This workshop will be aided by slide lectures, videos, and musical recordings in order to present the many facets of this truly interesting and exciting artist.
