City plans park for estate of Yoko Ono grandfather

FUKUOKA Alarmed by an investment proposal by a developer, the city of Yanagawa, Fukuoka Prefecture, has decided to purchase and turn into a public park an estate of Eijiro Ono, grandfather of artist Yoko Ono and former president of the Industrial Bank of Japan, the predecessor of Mizuho Bank.

The city is also considering building a memorial hall on the premises to commemorate contributions to world peace by Yoko Ono and John Lennon, her late husband, officials said.

John Cage WAS – out since 31 oct.

This new book came out 4 days.

Author James Klosty
Number Of Pages 232 pages
Format Hardcover
Publication Date 2014-10-31
Language English
Publisher Wesleyan University Press

It is difficult to imagine a world without John Cage. His playful, challenging spirit remains pervasivea formative force in the lives of those in the forefront of todays arts. This special book combines iconic photographs of Cage by James Klosty with eclectic testimony the author commissioned from people the world over, each asked to contribute their thoughts on Cages influence on their lives and work with one-hundred-word statements.

These remembrances range from humorous to reverent, to irreverent, and are from artists including Laurie Anderson, John Ashbery, Gavin Bryars, Jasper Johns, Harry Mathews, Meredith Monk, Mark Morris, Ron Padgett, Yoko Ono , Yvonne Rainer, Steve Reich, Peter Sellars, Stephen Sondheim, Twyla Tharp, Michael Tilson Thomas, Anne Waldman, Robert Wilson, and many more.

The evocative duotone photographs show John Cage alone and in association with Merce Cunningham, Marcel Duchamp, Octavio Paz, Aaron Copland, and many others. The book provides public and private glimpses into the man who transformed chance from an inescapable inevitability of life into disciplined creativity through music, writing, philosophy, printmaking, and, on the largest scale of all, living. John Cage Was gives us a privileged view of an irreplaceable man who had few enemies and innumerable disciples.

From the publisher’s catalog:

The evocative duotone photographs show John Cage

all, living.
John Cage Was gives us a privileged view of an
irreplaceable man who had few enemies and innumerable
disciples.

“With enviable intimacy this book captures the wit, the
wicked genius, and infectious curiosity of the great John
Cage. It is a testament to his power as an artist, and to his
lasting legacy as inspiration to anyone with a few ‘crazy’
ideas.”
Mikhail Baryshnikov

here is a review:

John Cage Was by James Klosty Review
By Bill Taft
September 2, 2014 | 5:55pm

Each contributor followed two Cage-ian constraints required by Klosty:

1) Write no more than 100 words.

2) Include the phrase John Cage Was …

The simple instructions set up revealing remembrances.

Yoko Ono, for example, acknowledges the lack of respect her early performance art received.

Yoko Ono Fuses Art And Activism To Achieve World Peace In The 21st Century

Yoko Ono Fuses Art And Activism To Achieve World Peace In The 21st Century

Last week she took time to honor a fellow philanthropic crusader, Hard Rock International CEO Hamish Dodds, by presenting him with the Spirit of Excellence Award on behalf of the T.J. Martell Foundation. Since 2008, the pair have teamed up annually with WhyHunger for IMAGINE THERES NO HUNGER, an initiative that has brought 9.7 million farm-fresh meals to starving children in over 20 countries and taught over 8,800 family and community members techniques for sustained food production.
