      Yoko Ono Lennon talks about her life as an artist and bohemian house-mother in New York during the early '60s. Her discussion touches on conceptual art, "arcting out therapy," the loft concerts she helped organize, and discrimination against the female artist. An interesting retrospective of the evolving avant-garde in the Big Apple during a highly creative period.
