A Fluxus/Yoko Ono Tribute 

Break-out your Plastic Ono Band records and get ready for Zeitgeist's tribute to Yoko Ono and the Fluxus movement, an event coinciding with the release of the remixed compilation of Ono's work, Open Your Box. Alternately idolized or loathed for her relationship with John Lennon, Ono is the most famous figure associated with Fluxus, a movement or concept that is itself devoted to change and incorporated many performance mediums. Artist George Maciunas kicked off the movement in the early '60s in New York, and it eventually spread to Europe and Japan. The Zeitgeist tribute includes films by and about Ono as well as speakers and musical performances at its temporary home at Tulane University's School of Architecture. The Misfits: 30 Years of Fluxus (7:30 p.m. Fri., March 30) is a Fluxus-inspired film about the movement on its 30th anniversary. A Tribute to Yoko Ono (7:30 p.m. Sat., March 31) screens short films by many Fluxus filmmakers. One of the films is an outrageous characterization of John and Yoko's relationship as a lesbian couple starring Suzie Bright. Sunday evening's program (7:30 p.m.) features films about Maciunas, work by Paul Sharits and live music. Individual ticket prices vary. Three-day pass $25, three-day pass for members $20. -- Will Coviello
