RAY JOHNSON "Please Add To and Return To"


RAY JOHNSON, “Please Add To and Return To”
Presented by Performa, in collaboration with the Estate of Ray Johnson

“Please Add To and Return To” is a mail art activation celebrating the life and work of artist Ray Johnson (1927-1995). Johnson’s body of work spans many media, and he is well known for his intricate and complex collages. Johnson, known to many as the father of the mail art movement, distributed “templates” of his original drawings via USPS with the instructions “Please Add To and Return To Ray Johnson” or send to someone else entirely. Upon receiving works back, Johnson would typically either photocopy and recirculate the altered versions or add them to his archive.
