RAY JOHNSON ~
R A Y J O H N S O N
Edited by Elizabeth Zuba
essay by Kevin Killian
Ray Johnson has forever been my favorite modern artist (USA) — a mixture of so many — Duchamp, de Kooning, Picasso, Cornell, Cage, Brainard, Warhol, Bruce Conner, and somebody I'm missing. It's good to miss somebody, keep a space open.
I telephoned John Cage and t old him
that you wanted me to interview him for Inter
view and he laughed and laughed and said "That's
the funniest thing I've ever heard."
I said "Maybe we could not talk to each other
for a half hour?"
