  3. Looking forward to the new catalogue for the recent MoMA New York exhibition Please Come to the Show, Part I (1960-1980). Editied by David Senior with texts by Clive Philpot and Will Holder and published by the always wonderful Occasional Papers and MoMA. Out February 2014.
momalibrary:

Little flyer from a Ray Johnson show of collages. Received by the library in 1955. Note on the back suggests it was perhaps shown at Wittenborn’s One-Wall gallery in 1952. A sad inductee in the Hall of Shame of past library stamping practices. —ds
