ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG @ MOMA

Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends, the first 21st-century retrospective of the artist, presents over 250 works across mediums from his six-decade career. Collaboration was always critical to Rauschenberg, and his inclusiveness did not stop at the point of making; it often involved the viewer. “My whole area of art has always been addressed to working with other people,” he reflected. “Ideas are not real estate.” To highlight the importance of exchange for Rauschenberg, the exhibition was structured as an “open monograph”—as other artists came into Rauschenberg’s creative life, their work comes into these galleries, mapping the play of ideas.

Side note *** I took advantage of the members only early hours to scope it out and am now so spoiled that I will do everything to avoid being at MoMA at any other time. DAYUUM.
