Ono's Sales List

New York: Yoko Ono, 1965. First edition. 8 1/2 x 14", mimeographed from typescript on recto only. Though unstated, one of only 200 copies produced.

A brilliant conceptual work, listing more tangible objects - such as the first edition of Grapefruit for $10 (don't let your tears hit the screen), alongside conceptual projects as a crying machine, which will cry when a coin is deposited, underwear for women that can make you high, and some architectural projects, including Light House.

In a 2006 ceremony announcing the creation of the tower of light in Reykjavik, Ono made reference to the work as follows: “It will be over forty years ago, when I conceived this idea of a light house made of light, and listed it in my Conceptual Sales List. Two hundred copies of which were sent out to people who followed my work.” [see Yoko Ono Imagine Peace, the catalog to the 2007 exhibition in Akron at the Emily Davis Gallery, p. 14 and footnote].

This copy lacks the two ballpoint corrections noted on other examples. It was acquired directly from Yoko Ono by the prior owner at the 1965 Fluxus performance at Carnegie Hall, and not mailed as most copies were.

Folded once, with some toning and staining, else very good. Item #29133

Price: $750.00
