Pioneer of mail art and an early participant in both the Pop and Fluxus movements, Ray Johnson created complex, punning works that ingeniously combine text and image, celebrity culture and art history, wit and melancholy. Figures such as Mickey Mouse, Elvis Presley, James Dean, Michael Jackson and Calvin Klein models populate his many collages. In the 20 years since his death, Johnson's work has become an increasingly accurate depiction of our fragmented and overstimulated society. This compendium includes 296 colour reproductions of collages, drawings, interventions and other ephemera from Johnson's estate.
