Robert Rauschenberg - private introductory lecture and exhibition
Visit and Talk | Tate Modern
Tuesday 10 January 2017 - 11:00
Well-known lecturer Frank Woodgate will give us an illustrated introductory talk on Robert Rauschenberg, the modern American master who changed the face of art, following which you will be able to visit this exciting exhibition.
Creating pop art alongside Andy Warhol and making an artwork out of his bed half a century before Tracey Emin, Robert Rauschenberg has been a global influence in the art world. This is the first major exhibition of his work in the UK since his death in 2008.
A Texan artist with a passion for travel and an enthusiasm for collaboration, Rauschenberg refused to accept conventional categories of what was and wasn’t art. Iconic works from his six-decade career include large-scale Pop Art screen prints of subjects such as JF Kennedy; Monogram ( a paint splattered taxidermy goat in a car tyre surrounded by street signs); and Bed (soiled sheets spattered with brushmarks).
Please apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
