 OHWOW is pleased to announce the publication of Leo Fitzpatrick's Not Garbage, a book based on the exhibition Ray's A Laugh curated by the artist. Expounding on this exhibition, Not Garbage presents a selection of contemporary artists responding to the work of collage and correspondence artist Ray Johnson (1927-1995). Here, another generation of New York artists including Joe BradleyDan ColenAdam McEwenLeo FitzpatrickHanna LidenNate LowmanJosh Smith, and Dash Snow, apply their own sense of wit and guile to the work of their forefather. These artists add personal twists to work that acknowledges the past, reflecting the importance of their own community. The individual means of communication that Johnson promulgated during his life remain a powerful force, still influencing the New York City art scene of today.
