ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG: ERASING THE RULES AT SFMOMA

Robert Rauschenberg: Erasing The Rules is a new retrospective showcasing a vast array of work from the boundary-breaking artist. Rauschenberg, who died in 1998, was a gay American painter and sculptor, who left behind a body of work spanning six decades and using materials that ran the gamut from a taxidermy eagle scavenged from the streets of New York City to a vat of sound-activated bubbling mud. With more than 150 of his artworks, including prints, sculptures, painting and Combines (works that incorporate both painting and sculpting), the exhibition at San Francisco’s SFMOMA not only explains key periods of the artist’s career in depth but also demonstrates how, with razor-sharp humour and intelligence, Rauschenberg broke down boundaries between disciplines, anticipated the pop art movement, and redefined what art could be for the generations of artists who followed.
