Yoko Ono tweets a lot of metaphors
On Sunday, Yoko Ono's solo show at the MOMA opened. The exhibition, curated by Klaus Biesenbach, Christophe Cherix, and Francesca Wilmost, consists mostly of works on paper displayed as an archive with an accompanying sound track. Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960-1971 is the first time Ono has had a one woman show at the MOMA since her unofficial debut in 1971 which she called Museum of Modern [F]art. What you may not know about Yoko Ono is that her Twitter account is an inexhaustible source of naively optimistic and/or humorously whimsical and/or dumb tweets. Here are some of the most metaphor-laden, in no particular order.

Next time you meet a 'foreigner', remember it's only like a window with a different shape to it and the person who's sitting inside is you.— Yoko Ono (@yokoono) May 9, 2015
