New Yorker Review: Robert Rauschenberg at Pace MacGill Gallery

Robert Rauschenberg and Photography

Through November 2, 2013

At the center of his work is the photographic, reproducible image and its infinite possibility for permutation.

This exhibition places places photography at the center of the artist's career. While the output of Rauschenberg's manipulations were not usually photography itself, rather screen prints, collages, and other highbreds, the role of the media has in the past been undervalued. This exhibition works to recontextualize the role of photography on the artist's work. Beyond this the exhibition also reveals the influence of the Bauhaus and its wedding of to truth to materials. Surface and texture are important qualities, so while there are a few straight photographs in the show we also find a selection of work made by alternative processes. We see him pushing and bending the extremes of photography's potential in the series Bleachers, bleached large format Polaroids; Nightshades photographs silkscreened onto aluminum; and Photems, shaped collages of photographs.
