Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008)
Presenting Robert Rauschenberg, one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century!
With his early works anticipating the Pop-Art movement and known as “the bad boy” of the art world, during his lifetime, Robert Rauschenberg broke all of the rules and presented an entirely new idea of what art could be throughout his 60-year career. This extremely rare exhibition is only the second solo of the late artist’s work to be shown in Colorado since 1981.
Considered to be one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century and with more than 50 original artworks spanning 1962–2008, made up of major loans from private and institutional collections, this is the largest solo exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg’s work ever presented in Colorado.
Rauschenberg’s experimental nature allowed him to create through sculpture, photography, dance, performance art, painting, print making, installation art, costume making and more! This exhibition explores Rauschenberg’s distinctively thoughtful process and varied style, by which he created, reproduced, transferred, multiplied and borrowed images and objects. In addition, viewer’s get a more intimate view into the life of the artist and see how Rauschenberg infused his works with an especially personal and intimate flavor, freely mixing content both from the wider world and from his own life.
