Celebrate 55 years since Yoko first published her pioneering book Grapefruit, containing a number of her instruction pieces.
To mark and celebrate the anniversary of the book that inspired the song Imagine, we are holding a Read-in for Peace in our Atrium at the Museum of Liverpool. Visitors are invited to come along and read out your favourite extracts from John and Yoko’s work, sit in on one of our story telling sessions, or take inspiration from Yoko and create and perform your own instruction pieces.
TUNAFISH SANDWICH PIECE
Imagine one thousand suns in the sky at the same time.
Let them shine for one hour.
Then, let them gradually melt into the sky.
Make one tunafish sandwich and eat.
Yoko Ono, spring 1964
