Ray Johnson: Correspondences

Ray Johnson



Ray Johnson: Correspondences offers a wide-ranging discussion of Johnson’s work and career in eight substantial essays.

A progenitor of pop art and a major force in the development of mail art, Johnson pursued the correspondences to be discovered in daily life—between objects, people, and events—in exquisite and richly detailed collages which he sent through the mail instead of exhibiting them. Ray Johnson: Correspondences was the first significant museum exhibition to examine an important American artist who made it his life's work to confound.

The catalogue was copublished by Flammarion and the Wexner Center in conjunction with an exhibition held at the Wexner Center September 16 - December 31, 2000. Essays by the exhibition’s curator, Donna De Salvo, Mason Klein, Wendy Steiner, Jonathan Weinberg, Sharla Sava, Lucy Lippard, William S. Wilson, and Henry Martin.
