ROCI CHILE (1985)

Created for ROCI CHILE, part of the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange project held at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Santiago in 1985, the majority of the works are from a series of paintings entitled the Copperheads (1985/1989), where Rauschenberg silkscreened his own photographs onto copper supports and used tarnishing agents to produce somber hues. The use of copper was meant as a sign of solidarity with the Chilean people.
