Robert Rauschenberg: Five Decades from the Whitney’s Collection at the Norton Museum of Art, February 21 – June 28, 2020

Jan 30, 2020

Presenting a concise survey of the radical work of Robert Rauschenberg, this exhibition traces the arc of the artist’s career, from the 1950s to the 1990s, through his pioneering use of media and imagery from popular culture. Rauschenberg manipulated everyday objects in his Combines and subsequently created hybrid works that combined painting, sculpture, collage, photography, and printmaking. The Norton is pleased to present key examples from five decades of his career, exemplifying his unconventional approach to materials and the creative process, one that has profoundly influenced younger generations of artists. The exhibition is organized around the transformative acquisitions the Whitney has made as a result of the vision and generosity of Leonard A. Lauder, as well as works that have been given to the Museum by Emily Fisher Landau and Barbara and Richard S. Lane.
