Exhibition catalog published in 1993 of works originally exhibited by Yoko Ono in 1962. While the original show did not have a catalog, many of the works were reconfigured in her self-published and self-distributed 1964 artists’ book Grapefruit.
Ono’s “Instructions for Paintings” was a groundbreaking exhibition of conceptual art and performance, developing concepts that would become the organizing thrust behind much of her more widely seen and well-known work. This catalog reproduces the works in English and Japanese texts as originally exhibited, with an introduction from curator John Hendricks.
