As the year rushes to a close, a few art-world issues and other things that linger on the mind this week.RAY, RAY, RAY
"Ray Johnson: En Rapport," Nov. 2, 2006-Jan. 6, 2007, at Feigen Contemporary in Chelsea, presents a survey of collage portraits of artists and others by the celebrated founder of the "Correspondance" School -- a far-flung network of mavericks and odd-balls all linked together by "mail art" at Ray’s instigation -- who died too early when he jumped off the Sag Harbor bridge at age 67 in 1995. Among his subjects are Diane Arbus, Arman, George Brecht, William Burroughs, Willem de Kooning and Andy Warhol, Ray’s ironic hero.
