An exhibition and event series related to a years-long correspondence between the legendary late artist Ray Johnson and Robert Warner, a subject explored in depth in Esopus 16. The exhibition included a series of two-hour performances at Esopus Space in which Warner archived the contents of 13 boxes given to him by Johnson in the early ’90s, and also featured a number of never-before-seen works by Johnson from Warner’s collection, a sampling of the two artists' correspondence, and a screening of videos of Ray Johnson by Nick Maravell on Tuesday, June 28, 2011, from 7 to 9 p.m.
With special thanks to the Ray Johnson Estate/Richard L. Feigen & Co.
