Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished by Yoko Ono / 48-page hardback, 5.5 x 5.5 inches, published in 2024 by JRP|Editions


Embodying her visionary philosophy, Yoko Ono's landmark artist's book is a companion for life

This new edition of the bestselling publication by avant-garde artist and cultural icon Yoko Ono combines never-published-before texts and invitation pieces written between 2016 and 2018 with drawings from the Franklin Drawings series made 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. Following several volumes that have proved to be life companions for many, Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished reflects on her most recent feelings through a delicate interweaving of poems, aphorisms, short stories and drawings.

Born in Tokyo in 1933, Yoko Ono moved 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 achieving new idioms in performance and art. Her boundary-pushing early works include the pioneering performance work Cut Piece and her book of collected conceptual instructions, Grapefruit (both 1964). Ono’s artworks and films are widely exhibited internationally and are included in numerous prestigious museum and private collections. In 2009 she was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement by the Venice Biennale. Ono’s groundbreaking work greatly influenced the international development of conceptual art, performance art, and experimental film and music.
