ROCI CHILE, part of the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange project, was held at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Santiago in 1985. The majority of works are from a series of paintings entitled Copperheads (1985/1989). To create the Copperheads, Rauschenberg silkscreened his own photographs onto copper supports and used tarnishing agents. The use of copper was meant as a sign of solidarity with the Chilean people. In addition, the artist created two large-scale works on canvas and one sculpture to complete the ROCI CHILE series.
