Robert Rauschenberg

Tate Modern, London

NOW CLOSED

This is the first major exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg’s work in the UK for 35 years and the first retrospective of the artist since his death in 2008. A Texan artist with a passion for the world, Rauschenberg refused to accept conventional categories of what was and wasn’t 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.
