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.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT YOKO ONO
“I learned everything from her. ... It is a teacher-pupil relationship. That's what people don't understand. She's the teacher and I'm the pupil. I'm the famous one, the one who's supposed to know everything, but she's my teacher. She's taught me everything I fucking know.”
''Yoko became an important person in the New York avant-garde. People came from long distances to attend the performances. They were the most interesting things going on.''
-John Cage, describing Ono’s pre-Lennon art career
“A hundred years from now, it's Yoko Ono the world's going to remember.”
-Charlotte Moorman, in the New York Times
“Grapefruit is one of the monuments of conceptual art of the early 1960s; [Yoko Ono] has a lyrical, poetic dimension that sets her apart from the other conceptual artists. Her approach to art was only made acceptable when white men like Kosuth and Weiner came in and did virtually the same thing as Yoko, but made them respectable and collectible.”
- Village Voice art critic David Bourdon.
“[Kurt Cobain] loved Yoko Ono and he loved her work. Then I got round to listening to it and I thought she was quite brilliant. Bizarre but brilliant. She sticks with her own thing.”
- Courtney Love
“I’ve loved Grapefruit from the moment I laid eyes on it, loved its sense of whimsy, its sense of play…There’s a reason Ono is currently a Twitter star,”
-David L. Ulin, book critic, The Los Angeles Times
“We truly loved her as an artist…We just thought she was a genius. I still think she’s a genius.”
-Kate Pierson of the B-52s
“She’s my idol,”
"No wonder the coolest guy in the world fell in love with her!"
-Ann Magnuson, New York City performance artist
