dc.description.abstractWith her music, films, performances, poetry, paintings, and sculptures, Yoko Ono has remained a seminal figure in Avant-grade culture since the 1960s. Her feminist art is inextricably related to the development of Conceptualism and Fluxus. Ono's feminist art is distinct from the rest of her work as it combined instructions, realization, audience participation, and use of language as a form of art. This report discusses the feminist art movement with a particular emphasis on Yoko Ono, which is based on a comprehensive search and review of literature, with over fifty academic materials reviewed. The study explores the contributions of Yoko Ono within feminist art and what differentiate her from other feminist artists in art history. The discussion within the study suggests that Ono's feminist artwork are not only restricted to painting, but also including poetry, painting, music, film, and sculpture among others. One section of the report analysis shows how Ono's marriage to Lennon contributed to the popularity of her feminist artwork, particularly the popularity of her works within the pop culture. Similarly highlighted within the discussion is the bearing of Ono's racial and transnational identities to her unique feminist practice. Drawing on the study objectives, the research concludes that Yoko Ono made significant contributions to the feminist art movement, and acted as a symbolic figure in contemporary feminism.en
