Correspondence Art walk-through with artists and curator

Saturday, January 23, 2016
Halsey Institute galleries

A gallery walk-through with Richard C. and Bob Ray will be held within the Halsey Institute’s galleries on Saturday, January 23, 2PM. 

CORRESPONDENCE ART:
WORDS, OBJECTS, AND IMAGES BY RAY JOHNSON, RICHARD C., AND BOB RAY

This exhibition brings together the correspondence works of three prolific mail artists:  Ray Johnson, Richard C., and Bob Ray. Conceptual artist Ray Johnson (1927–1995) was a pioneer of mail art, utilizing an ever-evolving lexicon of graphic and textual elements in his work. He corresponded with global artists, writers, and thinkers, including Richard C. and Bob Ray. A selection of vintage “mail art correspondence” between Richard C., Ray Johnson, and Bob Ray forms the historical backdrop for this exhibition. The remainder of the exhibition consists of words, objects, and images sent to curator Mark Sloan from Richard C. and Bob Ray in the past year including a number of collaborative works between these two artists.
