[New York]: Yoko Ono, 1961. Vintage black and white silver gelatin photographic print. 8 x 10 in. Near fine. Red reproduction stamp on verso, crossed out in blue ink in unknown hand. Item #6646
Conceived as a poster for Ono’s first major public performance at Carnegie Recital Hall on November 24, 1961, this silver gelatin print features Yoko Ono peering through a large sheet of newspapers pasted together with event details overpainted on the negative.
The event presented three works featuring voice, instruments, and movements by Fluxus members and avant-garde luminaries including Yvonne Rainer, La Monte Young, Jonas Mekas, Jackson Mac Low, Ay-O, George Brecht, and others.
A scarce photograph and working document for the published poster.
