Ray's a Laugh

August 1 - September 7, 2011

Serving as a tantalizing example of artistic independence and wit, Ray Johnson is an artist of almost mythic proportions. Purposefully setting himself off tangentially from the focus of the art scene radar throughout his life, Johnson was an artist who was constantly testing the boundaries of his relationship to the exhibition environment. This seemingly self-deprecating professional nature makes paying honorable tribute to his genius within the gallery system a difficult situation at best. In no small feat, Half Gallery at 208 Forsyth St. in the Lower East Side has done just this in their current show, Ray's a Laugh.
