Yoko Ono reclaims her artist status at nearly 80. Her new show at the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park, London strongly re connects Yoko to her avant-garde roots as it showcases her work from the Sixties through to today in the fields of performance, conceptual and video art. The centrepiece of the show is #smilesfilm, “The smile is such an important thing” says Yoko, “and I actually wrote that we had to do this in 1960-something,” she says. “It’s taken 50 years. In the last page of my Grapefruit book I asked for people to send in pictures of their smiles. It was a big picture. I thought it might take a while. I visualised it. Sometimes you have to wait.”
