“This exhibition is the culmination of Performa’s 2015 mail art re-activation project celebrating the work of artist Ray Johnson, “one of the most revered underground artists of the last half of the 20th century.”

As an homage to Johnson, the father of mail art, on the 20th anniversary of his death, Performa (in collaboration with the Ray Johnson Estate) placed a number of the artist’s “templates” back into circulation inviting participants to draw, collage or otherwise “add to” them and then “return” them to Johnson c/o Performa via USPS, the internet or through social media using the hashtag #PleaseAddTo.”

During my first visit to the Florida Keys in 2015, I left five pieces out on the streets.

As detailed in my previous post, for the commemoration of my 100th “Relationship” collage, I made a series of 10 (+1 artist’s proof) collaged book pages. This piece (Relationship C) was left on 11/22/15 in Key West, Florida. I stuck it on a Key West Citizen Newspaper box beside the (closed) Backspace Bar & Kitchen at the intersection of James St. and Grinnell St.
