Tables of Content: Ray Johnson and Robert Warner Bob Box Archive / MATRIX 241

January 27–May 20, 2012

The collagist Robert Warner has arranged the contents of thirteen boxes given to him by reclusive artist Ray Johnson (the "Bob Boxes") on tables and on the gallery walls. The collages, letters, drawings, beach trash and other found objects reveal Johnson's stream-of-consciousness flow through the matter and memory of everyday life. “Once you get into Johnson art, it's very hard to leave . . . take that immersive trip with a highly knowledgeable and profoundly committed guide” (Holland Cotter, New York Times).
