GREAT review of Guggenheim show

Now her time has come. The Yes Painting is not here as a piece of Lennonabilia but as one of a hugely impressive array of installations, performance documents, “instructions”, music and films that leave no doubt of a true original’s influence on the art of this century.

Is there any contemporary art style she did not pioneer? At times this feels like a retrospective of Turner Prize winners: here’s a film of a fly crawling on a woman’s naked thigh that might be misattributed to Douglas Gordon or Damien Hirst; a cinematic celebration of bottoms Martin Creed might be proud of, a chair wrapped in desiccated fabric that is as poetic as any sculpture by Rachel Whiteread all made by Ono more that forty years ago.
