'The show features a gallery full of never-before-seen work by Ray Johnson, the Father of Mail Art, from the private collection of Johnson’s contemporary and friend, Mark Bloch.
The main hall of the museum presents a living history of the ABAD Project and includes information about the life and work of Ray Johnson alongside the story of Matthew Rose’s original show and its many iterations all over the world. An 11.5-foot timeline traces all 29 shows and their curators and includes the curators’ notes.
The more than 250 original pieces created for this show came from 30 countries including Sweden, Japan, Malta, Luxembourg and Turkey. Visitors are encouraged to collect one of every card and take them home.'
