First Comprehensive Exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg’s Clayworks Since the 1980s at Thaddaeus Ropac Salzburg
Rarely seen clayworks from Robert Rauschenberg's two formative series will be on show at Thaddaeus Ropac Salzburg.
The exhibition will focus on two of the artist's famous series of clayworks. First the Japanese Clayworks (1982/1985), which blur the line between photograph and sculpture by combining images of ancient and modern Japan and painterly brushstrokes. The second series, Japanese Recreational Clayworks (1982–83/1985), represents reproductions of existing Western art masterpieces, consisting of prefabricated ceramic panels, with his own images of contemporary Japan.
