Yoko Ono, Grapefruit, 2015
Yoko Ono is a seminal figure in the development of conceptual art, performance, and Fluxus, as well as film and new music. Her artist's book Grapefruit, first published in 1964 in Tokyo by Wunternaum Press, in an edition of 500 copies, contains more than 150 works divided into five sections: MUSIC, PAINTING, EVENT, POETRY, OBJECT. These works—conceptual instructions—are the culmination of a process that dispensed with the physical and arrived at the idea.
Since the initial publication of Grapefruit, numerous expanded editions have been produced in many different languages. Today, first-edition copies are nearly impossible to find. This special-edition facsimile of that first edition, produced from the copy of the 1964 book in The Museum of Modern Art Library, is an exacting replica of Grapefruit as Ono first envisioned it.
