Her 1964 artistâ€™s book Grapefruit is one of the seminal documents of the Fluxus movement and a landmark of the genre. Her early multiples such as Mend Piece for John and A Box of Smile are also classics.Solo, and in collaboration with John Lennon, Ono has released more than 20 influential recordings. Yoko Ono: Books and Multiples presents a cross-section of these various disciplines and illustrates how Ono’s work not only encompasses an enormous range of media and styles, but is also often at the forefront. Art Metropole is also extremely proud to announce the launch of two new multiples by Ono a postcard and button bearing the phrase “Art is A Means of Survival.” Both are available at Art Metropole for $1.00.
