Nonchalant flirting with oblivion: Ray Johnson

“Untitled (Dali/Dear David Smith/Barbra Streisand)” (1974) is reproduced from Matthew Marks' excellent new Ray Johnson monograph. Featuring work from the ’60s through the ’90s, a selection of well-chosen archival photographs and a personal essay by Brad Gooch, this small but rich volume tells the story of “an obsessive patternmaker in his life and work … forever scrambling the two. All the elements were present from the start: the witty eye, the textural jump-cutting, the nonchalant flirting with oblivion.” Get it while it’s hot.
