♥ Book Title : Acorn
☯ Full Synopsis : "“It’s nearly 50 years ago that my book of conceptual instructions Grapefruit was first published. In these pages I’m picking up where I left off. After each day of sharing the instructions you should feel free to question, discuss, and/or report what your mind tells you. I’m just planting the seeds. Have fun.” —Yoko Ono Legendary avant-garde icon Yoko Ono has inspired generations of artists and performers. In Acorn, she offers enchanting and thought-provoking exercises that open our eyes—and all of our senses—to more creative and mindful ways of relating to ourselves, each other, and the planet we cohabit. Throughout this beautifully designed book are 100 black-and-white line drawings by Yoko. Like this legendary woman herself, the book is wildly original, stimulating, and hard to label: Call it purposeful play, call it brain poetry, call it guided motivation, call it Zen-like incantations, call it whatever you want. But read it. Acorn may change the way you experience the world."Article| Yoko Ono| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Yoko Ono: Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished
☯ Full Synopsis : "Embodying her visionary philosophy, Yoko Ono's latest artist's book is a companion for life This new publication by avant-garde artist and cultural icon Yoko Ono (born 1933) combines never-before-published texts and invitation pieces written in 2016-18 with drawings from the Franklin Summerseries Ono started in 1994. For Ono, words, artworks and books still have the power to change the world we live in for the better. Thus she continuously shares with us her vision and philosophy toward life--one that is made of pivotal experiences, unstoppable optimism and a love for the other. Coming after several volumes that have proved to be life companions for many, Everything in the Universe Is Unfinishedreflects on her most recent feelings through a delicate interweaving of poems, aphorisms, short stories and drawings. Born in Tokyo in 1933, Yoko Onomoved to New York in the mid-1950s, where she quickly became a critical link between the American and Japanese avant-gardes, participating in Fluxus and pioneering new idioms in performance and art. Ono's groundbreaking work greatly influenced the international development of conceptual art, performance art and experimental film and music."Article| Yoko Ono| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Yoko Ono
☯ Full Synopsis : "Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 19601971 examines the beginnings of Onos extensive career, demonstrating her pioneering role in visual art, performance and music during the 1960s and early 1970s. The exhibition begins in New York in December 1960, where Ono initiated a performance series with La Monte Young in her Chambers Street loft. Over the course of the decade, Ono earned international recognition, staging Cut Piece in Tokyo and Kyoto in 1964, exhibiting at the Indica Gallery in London in 1966, and launching her global War is Over! campaign in 1969. Ono returned to New York in the early 1970s and organized an unsanctioned one woman show at The Museum of Modern Art. Over forty years after Onos unofficial MoMA debut, the Museum will present its first exhibition dedicated exclusively to the artists work. The publication evaluates the broader cultural context of Onos early work and features five sections reflecting her geographic locations during this period and the corresponding evolution of her artistic practice. Each chapter includes an introduction written by a guest scholar, artwork descriptions, new interviews with key figures from the time, and a selection of primary documents culled from newspapers, magazines and journals."Article| Klaus Biesenbach| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Yoko Ono
☯ Full Synopsis : "This lyrical biography explores the life and art of Yoko Ono, from her childhood haiku to her avant-garde visual art and experimental music. An outcast throughout most of her life, and misunderstood by every group she was supposed to belong to, Yoko always followed her own unique vision to create art that was ahead of its time and would later be celebrated. Her focus remained on being an artist, even when the rest of world saw her only as the wife of John Lennon. Yoko Ono’s moving story will inspire any young adult who has ever felt like an outsider, or who is developing or questioning ideas about being an artist, to follow their dreams and find beauty in all that surrounds them. Praise for Yoko Ono: Collector of Skies STARRED REVIEW "Clean text space, delicate but legible font, and scads of photographic portraiture and art piece reproductions of excellent clarity contribute to an overall book design worthy of its subject." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review "A detailed portrait of a complex woman who for several reasons has a significant place in our cultural history. Even rabid fans of Lennon or the 1960s will find new information and angles in this searching study." —Kirkus Reviews "This beautifully produced, comprehensive, and highly sympathetic biography of the artist covers her entire life, reporting her influences and her accomplishments, and bringing her out from behind the shadow of her famous husband." —School Library Journal "This is handsomely designed and generously illustrated; it is also well researched and filled with intriguing details. There’s not a lot for young people about Ono. They will find this a good starting place." —Booklist Award 2014 Amelia Bloomer Project List"Article| Nell Beram| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : John Lennon: the Collected Artwork
☯ Full Synopsis : "Throughout the course of his career, John Lennon's work as an artist expressed common societal themes from every epoch he witnessed. Until now, little of this work has been seen in one place. For the first time, John Lennon: The Collected Artwork offers a visually captivating history of Lennon's art, including more than 200 images and featuring 25 never-before-published pieces from the archives of Yoko Ono. Often surreal and extremely vibrant, Lennon's drawings were widely considered some of the finest interpretive art of the era. His 1969 Bag One series, frequently censored due to its overt eroticism, is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and his peace-themed sketches have been used in antiwar movements since the 1970s. Selections from these and many other series are featured in this matchless collection, a beautiful showpiece and a timeless record of Lennon's emotional, political, and imaginative spirit."Article| John Lennon| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Fluxus Experience
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Higgins bravely argues for the experiential, life-affirming qualities of Fluxus, combining theory and practice in a most sophisticated, engaging, and refreshing manner. She situates Fluxus in the context of American art history as well as international art practices, while exploring sense-related theory in enticing accounts of her own observations of and participation in Fluxus works."—Kathy O'Dell, author of Contract with the Skin: Masochism, Performance Art, and the 1970s "Higgins provides a new, refreshing way of seeing the politics within and around Fluxus, exposing the politically charged press coverage of the movement and dismantling its prejudicial legacy. Higgins represents a new generation of Fluxus scholars who are impatient with the objective pose and historical rigidity of academic art history."—Simon Anderson "Hannah Higgins's book Fluxus Experience is a wonderful and much needed addition to the literature on Fluxus. Both insightful and provocative, her work offers a thorough consideration of the development and reception of Fluxus from the late 1950s through the early 1990s. This book is essential for anyone interested in Fluxus, particularly anyone who wants to understand its cognitive and phenomenological bases."—Owen Smith, author of Fluxus: The History of an Attitude"Article| Hannah Higgins| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Woman
☯ Full Synopsis : "Although most famous as John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono has many strings to her bow and, given her media profile, it is a wonder that there have never been any major books written about her life. While most writers usually talk about the part she played in breaking up the Beatles, this book bucks that trend, focusing on her extraordinary life, from her childhood in Nagasaki to her move to London in the '60s where she joined the community of avant-garde artists and where she met John Lennon. The book covers their relationship and even Yoko's lonely years after Lennon's death."Article| Alan Clayson| Statement ..."
