Robert RAUSCHENBERG

  • Rauschenberg in China
    June 12, 2016 - August 21, 2016
    Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA)
    Beijing, China

    The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) is proud to present “Rauschenberg in China.” The exhibition centers on Robert Rauschenberg’s (1925-2008) magnum opus The 1/4 Mile or 2 Furlong Piece (1981–98), its 190 parts stretching 305 meters and exhibited for the first time since 2000. Also included in the exhibition are a selection of Rauschenberg’s color photographs titled Study for Chinese Summerhall, taken during the artist’s travels in China in 1982. Accompanying these works is a collection of documentation and ephemera related to his transformational 1985 exhibition “ROCI CHINA” at the institution now known as the National Art Museum of China, offering a rare glimpse into the historical moment when the artist’s global quest for inspiration and cultural exchange through art put him in front of an emerging generation of Chinese artists, during a period that would later come to be known as the “’85 New Wave.” Organized in collaboration with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and curated by Susan Davidson and David White, “Rauschenberg in China” is the first major exhibition in over three decades to showcase the artist’s work to Chinese audiences.

  • E.A.T. - Experiments in Art and Technology
    July 25, 2015 - November 1, 2015
    Museum der Moderne, Salzburg, Austria

    The Museum der Moderne Salzburg presents the first comprehensive retrospective of the activities of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a unique association of engineers and artists who made history in the 1960s and 1970s. Artists like Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008) and Robert Whitman (b. 1935) teamed up with Billy Klüver (1927–2004), a visionary engineer at Bell Telephone Laboratories, and his colleague Fred Waldhauer (1927–1993) to launch a groundbreaking initiative that would realize works of art in unprecedented collaborative ventures. In addition to numerous works of art, the chronologically structured exhibition also presents a wealth of previously unpublished archival materials.
