"Rauschenberg: Collecting and Connecting" Art Exhibit

A fresh look at 30 of Rauschenberg’s works spanning five-decades of his career, art that he reserved in his own collection. Organized into nine sections, two gallery pavilions will feature Rauschenberg together with work by artists in the Nasher Museum’s permanent collection, with special emphasis on its significant group of Russian nonconformist and conceptual art of the 1980s and 1990s, on view for the first time. In addition, the exhibition includes the Nasher’s newly acquired collection of works by Bruce Conner, putting Rauschenberg’s art in conversation with 25 of Conner’s works in a section titled Bruce Conner One Man Show (with Rauschenberg). The exhibition includes painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, fresco, assemblage, photography and film. Admission $5, $4 seniors, $3 non-Duke students with student ID.
