“Remember, each one of us has the power to change the world. Just start thinking peace, and the message will spread quicker than you think.”Upon the timely occasion of Yoko Ono's 88th birthday, the revolutionary artist’s magnum opus rings poignant as ever. In celebration of her impressive life and career, we turn our attention to ‘Grapefruit’ (1964), a collection of meta-works or "paintings to be constructed in your head", compounding profound brilliance through simple poetics. At once an expression and subversion of the universal human experience, Ono's enduring body of work challenges its participating audience to envision the infinite beauty beheld by an unseen world at large. Whether you'll be celebrating Ono with a pilgrimage to the artist’s MTA-commissioned mosaic at the Dakota-adjacent 72nd Street subway station, by perusing these must-see images from the MHG archives or through your own enactment of an Ono-scored instruction painting, may the only 'cut piece' be that of birthday cake.
