Ray Johnson - Museum of Modern Art Tokyo Flier, 1990

Ray Johnson

(8 ½ x 11 in.) Offset. Very good condition. Two horizontal creases from folding sheet in thirds. Otherwise clean and without clipping. 

This flier, made five years before Johnson’s death, reproduces an image of the artist from his youth. The work comes from a time when Johnson was increasingly focusing on his age and mortality in his work, as well as on his legacy. This flier shows the ambivalence and playfulness with which Ray Johnson approached issues of a canonization, institutional support, and memorialization.
