Despite an oeuvre that includes a range of pertinent, original and intelligent performances, videos, installations and objects, Yoko Ono has had a hard time shedding the image of a conniving wife and then widow of John Lennon. Her week-long Bed-Ins for Peace, staged with the Beatle in 1969 in Amsterdam and then Montreal, are remembered more for their sensationalism -- the famous couple basically invited the media into their bedroom on their honeymoon -- than as a powerful protest against the Vietnam War.
