Rauschenberg - Collecting  Connecting
NEW EXHIBITION / The Nasher Museum presents Rauschenberg: Collecting & Connecting, an exhibition spanning six decades of works by Robert Rauschenberg. The exhibition offers a fresh look at 34 works of art that the artist reserved in his own collection. The exhibition, on view through Jan. 11, 2015, originated at Duke in collaboration with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in New York. Two gallery pavilions organized into eight sections also include works by artists in the Nasher Museum’s collection, with special emphasis on Soviet nonconformist and conceptual art of the 1980s and 1990s on view for the first time. The exhibition also features 24 works from the newly acquired gift of more than 50 works by San Francisco artist Bruce Conner.
