Yoko Ono Grapefruit SIGNED & numbered edition of 50, MoMA, 2015, in shrinkwrap
New York: Museum of Modern Art, 2015. Facsimile. Still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, this signed and hand-numbered set is in pristine condition. Paperback in a slipcase, 5.5 x 5.5 x 1.5 in., 180 pages. "This copy of the facsimile edition is one of fifty numbered copies signed by Yoko Ono." This is #20/50. 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. The Museum of Modern Art has produced a facsimile of that first edition, making it available again in its original form. This slipcased paperback is produced from the copy of the 1964 book in The Museum of Modern Art Library. It is an exacting replica of Grapefruit as Ono first envisioned it. The book will be insured for the full value of the purchase price when shipping. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
