Yoko Ono b 1933 Japan

 Today Yoko Ono is one of the few contemporary artists who are known to a wider audience. She began her carrier as a reluctant member of Fluxus, an experimental and Dada-inspired network of artist that developed in the early 1960s. John Cage was one of the most important influences on her performance art. 

For the biennial Yoko Ono has made a site specific variation on one of her main themes: the ladder.

John Baldessari (b. 1931, USA)

John Baldessari is a well known veteran within conceptual art. His work often attempts to point out irony in contemporary art theory and practices or reduce it to absurdity. His art has been featured in more than 120 solo exhibitions in the US and Europe.


Much of Baldessari's work involves pointing, in which he tells the viewer not only what to look at but how to make selections and comparisons, often simply for the sake of doing so. Baldessari critiques formalist assessments of art.
