Biographical Sketch

Ray Johnson (1927-1995) is formally credited with fathering "mail art" as an autonomous genre through his creation of the New York Correspondence School (later The Buddha University, The Asparagus Club, and the Taoist Pop Art School) a network of artists with whom he exchanged, forwarded, and directed art, chosen objects, and collaborative projects through the mail, and with whom he organized associated meetings, performances, and events. Johnson's personal mail art network extended into Canada following his participation in Concrete Poetry an exhibition organized by the Fine Art Gallery, the University of British Columbia in 1969.

Custodial History

The collection was donated to Art Metropole by General Idea (1968-1994). One of the first artist-run centres in Canada, Art Metropole was founded by General Idea in 1974 and is part of the international network of parallel galleries committed to conceptual art. The art work (artists' books, audio tapes, videotapes, and multiples) produced and documentation about this movement was collected, catalogued, and preserved by Art Metropole, exhibited there, loaned for exhibition to other organizations, and made available to researchers. The Art Metropole Collection, including the Ray Johnson Mail Art, was donated to the National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives by Jay A. Smith, Toronto, 1999.
