Robert Rauschenberg, "Retroactive II" (1963) is reproduced from <I>Robert Rauschenberg</I>.

"Painting relates to both art and life. Neither can be made. (I try to act in the gap between the two.)" —Robert Rauschenberg

The early 1950s, when Robert Rauschenberg launched his career, was the heyday of the heroic gestural painting of Abstract Expressionism. Rauschenberg challenged this tradition, inventing new intermedia forms of art making that shaped the decades to come. Published in conjunction with the inaugural 21st-century retrospective of this defining figure, this book offers fresh perspectives on Rauschenberg’s widely celebrated Combines (1954–64) and silkscreen paintings (1962–64). It also illuminates lesser-known periods within Rauschenberg’s career, including his work of the early 1950s and that from the late 1960s onward, now compelling and prescient to contemporary eyes.
Sixteen short essays by eminent scholars and emerging new writers focus on specific moments within Rauschenberg’s career, examining his creative production across an extraordinary range of media. Integrating new scholarship, documentary imagery and archival materials, Robert Rauschenberg is the first comprehensive catalogue of the artist’s career in 20 years, an important contribution to American cultural and intellectual history across disciplines and a necessary volume for anyone interested in art of the present day.
Over the span of six decades, Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008) worked in an astonishing range of mediums including painting, sculpture, prints, photography and performance, and became one of the most transformative figures in postwar American culture. Working alone and in collaboration with artists, dancers, musicians and writers, Rauschenberg produced a vast body of work that continues to resonate today.

Interview

Devon Ivie

Offering both a complete overview and fresh perspective of the momentous artist, nearly everything that Rauschenberg tackled in his career is included here, including his printmaking, photography, and famous silkscreen paintings. His extraordinary artistic range will keep him in the forefront of modern art for years to come, and this book is a fitting artifact to document his legacy.

The Art Newspaper

Rauschenberg was a harbinger of the 21st-century artist

Creative Review

It’s impossible not to feel once again that we still need Rauschenberg with us, now more than ever.

Celebrate one of the most fearlessly experimental artists of all time

Celebrate one of the most fearlessly experimental artists of all timeOne of the most relentlessly experimental American artists of all time, Robert Rauschenberg choreographed and wrote the music for Pelican in 1963. First performed by Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham dancer Carolyn Brown and Swedish Fluxus artist Per Olof Ultvedt at the America on Wheels pop festival (held inside a Washington, D.C. roller skating rink), it was revived in 1965 for the historic First New York Theater Rally organized by Jewish Museum director/Venice Biennale curator Alan Solomon. Featured photograph, by Peter Moore, captures Rauschenberg in the 1965 happening, performed with Carolyn Brown and Judson Church dancer Alex Hay, which took place at a former CBS television studio in New York. See the monumental Robert Rauschenberg retrospective exhibition opening today at MoMA, and order your copy of the superb, comprehensive exhibition catalog here! continue to blog

No guarantee of enlightenment, humor, beauty or art: Robert Rauschenberg

No guarantee of enlightenment, humor, beauty or art: Robert RauschenbergRobert Rauschenberg's "Bed" is among the most seminal of all seminal artworks of the twentieth century. Comprised of oil, pencil, toothpaste and red fingernail polish on pillow, quilt (previously owned by Dorothea Rockburne), and bedsheet mounted on wood supports, it is arguably the artist's first Combine. Produced in 1955, this hybrid artwork was completed seven years after Rauschenberg first encountered Josef Albers at Black Mountain College, four years after he met John Cage, three years after his travels through Europe and North Africa with painter and partner Cy Twombly, two years after he erased a drawing by Willem de Kooning and called it art, and one year from the time he met and became romantically involved with Jasper Johns, whose own masterpiece, "Flag," was also produced in 1955. One year later, Rauschenberg would write, "I consider the text of a newspaper, the detail of a photograph, the stitch in a baseball, and the filament in a light bulb as fundamental to the painting as brush stroke or enamel drip of paint. In the end, what one sees as my work is what I choose to make with no guarantee of enlightenment, humor, beauty or art." continue to blog

Almost impossibly rich and rewarding: Robert Rauschenberg opens at MoMA

Almost impossibly rich and rewarding: Robert Rauschenberg opens at MoMAThis weekend, The Museum of Modern Art opens the mega-Robert Rauschenberg traveling retrospective that everyone’s been talking about. "From first to last," the show is "almost impossibly rich and rewarding," Adrian Searle wrote in The Guardian when the show opened at Tate. "Paintings made with dirt and paintings of nothing at all, images that encapsulate the achievements and disasters of 1960s America, a stuffed goat that looks like it has been feeding from a painter’s palette, and a mud-bath gurgling liquid cement like a lava pool. The exhibition moves through a life and career at gathering pace, from the early 1950s to the artist’s death in 2008. Room after room arrest us with yet another creative swerve, a shift in medium, scale, formal attack and presence." continue to blog
