A Transgressive Diva
Yoko Ono is one of the most recognized Japanese persons overseas. Her 1969 marriage to John Lennon catapulted this bilingual and bicultural avant-garde artist onto a world stage, and Ono both benefited from and suffered greatly under the global media gaze. This chapter looks at how Ono represented transgressive aspects of Japanese womanhood to the world, which loved and hated her in equal turns. This chapter also includes a discussion of a number of Ono's iconic works of performance art, film, and music as feminist statements that still have impact today.
