DIAS : Axes, pianos, Yoko Ono and statues of Christ

Yoko Ono says her dress section, worn for a performance at the symposium and held by the Tate Archive, represents a memory of the gathering responsible for the initial creative force driving the show.

It changed the map of the art world, she believes. Before DIAS, art seemed to have been something that was happening in the United States for the rest of us to acknowledge and envy.

After DIAS, the strong creative force in art became the stuff of this side of the Atlantic, and never went back.
