In celebration of the launch of Performance Magazine Online at the British Library on 27 April 2017, LADA is pleased to offer a selection of articles from Performance Magazine.
Continuing with: The Poetry of the Personal: In Conversation with Yoko Ono by Gray Watson and Rob La Frenais
Issue 63 March 1991
Both Gray Watson and Rob La Frenais meet up with Yoko Ono in 1991 to discuss her recent exhibitions, whether her new work needs its historical context to be explained, the commercialisation and fetishisation of art, and the contribution of art to peace.

About the project
Rob La Frenais (founding editor of Performance Magazine, 1979–1987) has collaborated with the Live Art Development Agency to develop the Performance Magazine Online project. All sixty-six issues of Performance Magazine have been digitised and are accessible to freely search, browse and read. A new film by Hugo Glendinning and Alex Eisenberg maps the magazine’s history and legacy. Commissioned features (released May - July 2017) by Anne Bean, Hester Reeve, Lynn MacRitchie, Claire MacDonald and Nahum Mantra respond to the archive and the period when the magazine was published.
Performance Magazine Online is supported using public funding by Arts Council England
