CATALOGUE REFERENCE : Gemini GEL Catalogue Raisonne no. After a brief stint in Paris, Robert Rauschenberg moved to North Carolina, where Joseph Albers and Buckminster Fuller were teaching at Black Mountain College. There, with dancer Merce Cunningham and musician John Cage, he began what was to be an artistic revolution.
In New York, he turned his attention to painting, combining his enthusiasm for popular culture with an embrace of'non-art' materials. By 1958, at the time of his first solo exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery, his work had moved from abstract painting to works such as "Erased De Kooning" (1953) and the three-dimensional collages he called he termed combines. As Pop Art emerged in the'60s, Rauschenberg began to work in two dimensions, using magazine photographs of current events to make silk-screen prints. From the mid'60s through the'70s he experimented with printing onto aluminum, Plexiglas, clothing, and other surfaces.
He also challenged the view of the artist as auteur by assembling engineers to help in the production of pieces designed to incorporate the viewer as an active participant. Throughout the'80s and'90s, he concentrated primarily on collage and new ways to transfer photographs. In 1998 The Guggenheim Museum put on its largest exhibition ever, including over four hundred works, which effectively showcased the breadth and influence beauty of his work.
