Not nothing : selected writings by Ray Johnson, 1954-1994 by Ray Johnson( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ray Johnson, considered the progenitor of Correspondence art, blurred the boundaries between life and art, authorship and intimacy. The defining nature of his work were his letters (often both visual and textual in character), intended to be received, replied to (altered and embellished) and read, again and again. This lovingly curated collection of more than 200 mostly previously unpublished writings - including selected letters, minutes for "New York Correspondence School" meetings, hand-written notes and other writings - opens a new view into the whirling flux of Johnson's art, highlighting his keen sense of play as well as his attuned sensitivity to both language and the shifting nature of meaning. Cumulatively, the writings reveal not only how he created relationships, glyphs and puzzles by connecting words, phrases, people and ideas, but also something about the elusive Johnson himself"--The publisher
