Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts
A year after the death of Robert Rauschenberg, Peggy Guggenheim Collection pay tribute to one of the biggest artist of american art of 50's with an exhibition from May 30 to September 20 where the series Gluts will be presented to the public.
Robert Rauschenberg: Gluts will feature a selected group of approximately forty sculptures drawn from the holdings of institutions and private collections in the United States and abroad. After breaking boundaries with his celebrated Combines, in the late 1950s, his explorations of technology-based art that made viewers active participants in the 1960s, and his focus on natural-fiber materials of paper, cardboard, and fabric throughout the 1970s, Rauschenberg’s artistic attention in the 1980s turned toward an exploration of the visual properties of metal.
Assembling found metal objects such as gas-station signs, deteriorated automotive and industrial parts littering the landscape, he transformed the scrap-metal detritus into wall reliefs and freestanding sculptures that recalled his earlier Combines. Thus he created the Gluts, sculptural works begun in 1986 and continued intermittently until 1995.
