As John Lennon would say, "Oh Yoko! In the middle of a high-class artspace I call your name..." After focusing more on music in recent years—where she's become an unlikely dance-music heroine—Yoko Ono has returned to visual art with a London display titled "To the Light," her first public exhibit in a decade. And yes, Beatlemaniacs, her late husband plays a posthumous role in it. The subtitle of one of their classic songs, "War is Over," plays a key part in one installation of Ono's at the Serpentine Gallery. Another mixed-media piece features a slow-motion video of Lennon smiling, which ties into an ongoing project of Ono's in which she says she's hoping to get a snapshot of every person in the world flashing a similarly happy expression. Frown is over, if you want it! Below is photographic preview of what London art lovers are seeing in Ono's exhibition. -- Chris Willman
