It's past 6pm and I am still in my pjs. I spent most of the day alternating between napping, writing in my paper journal, and watching The Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
Welcome to the blogging portion of my day.
Today got reported in one paragraph, so let me tell you about yesterday.
Double L and I went into Manhattan to see Yoko One, One Woman Show, 1960-1971 at the MoMA. Sadly photography was not allowed otherwise you would find at least a hundred pics here.
Cut Piece 1964. A film of her performance piece at Carnegie Hall. Ono sat on the stage and allowed audience members to cut away pieces of her clothing. Watching her expression I felt she was trying to project herself out of her physical body and become the observer not the observed.
Half-a-Room 1967. A room where all the mostly painted white domestic objects are bisected.
Grapefruit 1964. Both an artists book and a work of conceptual art. Normally an artists book is made up of individual works of art. Yoko typed Event Scores which are instructions for actions on individual white cards. The cards were displayed on the gallery wall. I wanted to buy a copy of the book but the gift shop guy said; sorry out, but it looks like I can get a copy on Amazon.
We also experienced One Way Ticket: Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series and Other Visions of the Great Movement North.

After the museum we had a picnic lunch near the Central Park Lake. Afterwards we took a walk around the entire lake.
I hope you all enjoyed your day.
Thanks for stopping in.
