Robert Rauschenberg

Tate Modern
London

1 December 2016 – 2 April 2017

Modern American master Robert Rauschenberg blazed a new trail for art in the second half of the twentieth century.

His quest for innovation was fired by boundless curiosity for new ways of making, from his iconic Combines – hybrids between painting and sculpture – to signature silkscreen paintings and groundbreaking performance art. Iconic works from his six decade career include large-scale pop art screen prints picturing the likes of JF Kennedy; Monogram, a paint splattered taxidermy goat in a car tyre surrounded by street signs; and Bed, soiled sheets spattered with brushmarks.

In the first major exhibition of his work in the UK for 35 years and the first retrospective of the artist since his death in 2008, Tate Modern celebrates his extraordinary six-decade career, showcasing major international loans that rarely travel and telling the story of a remarkable artist whose influence is still felt today.
