Robert Rauschenberg: Combines

Traveling Exhibition, 2005-2007

By

Robert Rauschenberg (American, 1925-2008) is rightly famous for his freestanding and wall-hung "combine" (mixed-media) pieces created between 1954 and 1964. These works were both influenced by Surrealism and a harbinger of Pop Art and, as such, form an art historic bridge between movements. This incarnation of the traveling exhibition Robert Rauschenberg: Combines was organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Shortly before being on its way to the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, About Art History caught up with Combines during its stay at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. The gallery that follows is courtesy of the latter institution.
