The conceit of “From My Window” — an exhibition that covers Yoko Ono as a conceptual artist from the 1950s onwards — is to focus on her connection with Tokyo. Since it’s at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Contemporary Art, maybe that’s to be expected, but this does not necessarily jibe well with Ono’s reputation as constantly challenging geographical, political and social boundaries.

The exhibition opens with an installation of small antique cricket cages suspended from the ceiling, each with a metal plate engraved with the date and place of historical human tragedies, among which the shooting of John Lennon appears.
