Robert Rauschenberg by Robert Rauschenberg( )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critical essays on the artist Robert Rauschenberg, focusing on the important period of his development in the 1950s and 1960s.From the moment art historian Leo Steinberg championed his work in opposition to Clement Greenberg's rigid formalism, Robert Rauschenberg has played a pivotal role in the development and understanding of postmodern art. Challenging nearly all the prevailing assumptions about the visual arts of his time, he pioneered the postwar revival of collage, photography, silkscreen, technology, and performance.This book focuses on Rauschenberg's work during the critical period of the 1950s and 1960s. It opens with a newly prefaced version of Leo Steinberg's "Reflections on the State of Criticism," the first published version of his famous 1972 essay, "Other Criteria," which remains the single most important text on Rauschenberg. Rosalind Krauss's "Rauschenberg and the Materialized Image" builds on Steinberg's essay, arguing that Rauschenberg's work represents a decisive shift in contemporary art. Douglas Crimp's "On the Museum's Ruins" examines Rauschenberg's silkscreens in the context of the modern museum. Helen Molesworth's "Before Bed" uses psychoanalytic and economic structures to examine the artist's Black Paintings of the early 1950s. A second essay by Krauss, "Perpetual Inventory," revisits both her and Steinberg's articles of nearly twenty-five years earlier. Finally, Branden Joseph's "A Duplication Containing Duplications" views Rauschenberg's silkscreens in relation to the artist's interests in technology, particularly television
Robert Rauschenberg : breaking boundaries by Robert Saltonstall Mattison( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Rauschenberg is one of the most prolific and best-known artists of the post-war period, whose work, ranging across a number of disciplines, has influenced avant-garde art since the 1950s. Rauschenberg has allowed Robert Mattison into his studio to observe the artist at work and this resulting book examines selected projects in depth so that the meaning of his art, his working procedures, and the reasons behind his various artistic choices may be better understood." "The book covers the influence of urbanism on Rauschenberg's Combine paintings of the 1950s and explores his involvement with the "space race" during the 1960s and 1970s, relating his works to popular culture and demonstrating the development of his ideas about the peaceful exploration of space. Mattison examines Rauschenberg's extensive involvement in the performing arts, tracing his connections to avant-garde dance in America, addressing his own performances, and focusing on his work with the well-known choreographer Trisha Brown. The final chapter examines Rauschenberg's most extensive artistic undertaking, the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange (ROCI). One venue of this seven-year and eleven-country project was Chile, which Rauschenberg visited while the country was under the rule of dictator Augusto Pinochet. The author shows how in dangerous political circumstances Rauschenberg was able to execute and exhibit works critical of the government." "Lavishly illustrated with Rauschenberg's works and photographs of the artist in performance and in the studio, the mixture of the visual arts, politics, technology, dance, and urban theory - among other issues - covered in this study recommends it to a wide audience and speaks to the multidisciplinary scholarship of our era."--Jacket

Random order : Robert Rauschenberg and the neo-avant-garde by Branden Wayne Joseph( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Rauschenberg is one of the most important visual artists of the second half of the twentieth century. In Random Order, Branden Joseph examines Rauschenberg's work in the context of the American neo-avant-garde. One of the foundations of his study is Rauschenberg's professional relationship with experimental composer John Cage. From the moment of their encounter at Black Mountain College in 1952, Joseph argues, Rauschenberg and Cage initiated a new avant-garde project, one that approached the idea of difference not in terms of negation but as a positive force. Claiming that Rauschenberg's work cannot be understood solely from the standpoint of the Frankfurt School - whose theories have dominated discussions of avant-garde and neo-avante-garde aesthetics - Joseph turns to the theoretical positions of Gilles Deleuze and Jacques Derrida. Rauschenberg's neo-avant-garde was not a simple repetition of earlier avant-garde movements, Joseph shows, but a series of practices that opposed the rise of postwar spectacle, commodification, and mass conformity." "Beginning with the White Paintings, Joseph examines Rauschenberg's artistic development from 1951 to 1971. He looks at the black paintings, Red Paintings, Elemental Paintings and Elemental Sculptures. Combines and Combine paintings transfer drawings and silkscreens, performances, and explorations in art and technology. Joseph's study not only offers new interpretations of Rauschenberg's work but also deepens our understanding of the entire neo-avant-garde project."--Jacket

Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange by Robert Rauschenberg( Book )

15 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A catalog of an international art project seven years in the making, ROCI documents an exhibition that traveled in many senses. Robert Rauschenberg, once the enfant terrible of the New York School, is now the Old Master journeying to disparate locales in Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Americas, salvaging found or discarded objects and imagery. The resulting ROCI exhibitions, held in each nation after intensely focused research trips by the artist, incorporate Rauschenberg's ability to accumulate the images and colors of a society--from the sacred to the banal--into a structure of cultural interchange and international diplomacy. The art inspired by each region is reproduced here in successive chapters introduced by local notables like Octavio Paz and Yevgeny Yevtushenko. The results are as bewilderingly varied and compelling as his travels must have been. Indeed, the book is splendid to behold, laconically emphasizing the work itself rather than allowing art jargon to overwhelm the lovely color reproductions. Highly recommended
Robert Rauschenberg by Sam Hunter( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout his illustrious career, Robert Rauschenberg has consistently challenged the prevailing ideologies and techniques of the art world. One of our greatest American artists, he redefined what materials were suitable for art, boldly rebelling against the predominant abstract expressionism of the time. This insightful analysis into Rauschenberg's work and life examines his bravery in pushing beyond technical and aesthetic frontiers as well as his influential dissemination of photography, film, and television, which altered the genre of traditional painting. Rauschenberg's seminal works -- from his "combines" (urban trash on painted surfaces) to his silk screens -- are reproduced here in full color. The author also discusses some of the artist's more recent projects, including ROCI, Rauschenberg's own exhibition organization that showcases diverse artists from all over the world. -- From product description
Encounters with Rauschenberg : (a lavishly illustrated lecture) by Leo Steinberg( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leo Steinberg is the rare art historian who has known the pressures implicit in reviewing the work of living artists. In his engrossing lecture, filled with exciting insights and personal memories, he surveys the career of Robert Rauschenberg, one of the great American postwar artists. Beginning with his own experience as a moonlighting critic in the turbulent art world of New York in the 1950s and 1960s, he reveals much about himself and more about the insolent originality of the young Rauschenberg." "Steinberg offers in-depth discussions of such major challenges as the Erased de Kooning Drawing, Bed, and Monogram. Where his interpretations differ from those of other critics, he shows how, and why. And he reflects candidly on his own changes of mind over the years." "Steinberg warns against the modish interpretations that now load Rauschenberg's work with murderous symbolism or same-sex iconography. He argues that meaning in this artist's work is almost unspeakable, and the novel relationship established between the work and the viewer more subtly intentioned."--Jacket

Rauschenberg by Andrew Forge( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered by many to be one of the most influential American artists due to his radical blending of materials and methods, Robert Rauschenberg was a crucial figure in the transition from Abstract Expressionism to later modern movements ... his experimental approach expanded the traditional boundaries of art, opening up avenues of exploration for future artists."

The great migrator : Robert Rauschenberg and the global rise of American art by Hiroko Ikegami( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines American artist Robert Rauschenberg's (1925-2008) activities abroad and charts the increasing international dominance of American art during that period. Rauschenberg came to prominence during the 1950s transition from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art. The author focuses on Rauschenberg's stops in four cities -- Paris, Venice, Stockholm, and Tokyo. In each city Rauschenberg's work encountered both enthusiasm and resistance. The author feels that the global rise of American art as a cross-cultural phenomenon in which each art community Rauschenberg visited was searching in different ways for cultural and artistic identity in the midst of Americanization. Rauschenberg's travels and collaborations established a new kind of transnational network for the postwar art world -- prefiguring the globalization of art before the era of globalization
Merce Cunningham : a lifetime of dance by Merce Cunningham( Visual )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merce Cunningham, a colossus of 20th-century choreography, is perhaps most famous for his sheer fecundity--inventing steps, choreographing 200+ dances, and over 800 "Events" (site-specific works). At the forefront of the American avant-garde for more than 50 years, he abandoned conventional elements of dance structure, most controversially, the relationship of dance and music influenced by his collaboration with composer John Cage. Endlessly inventive and inquisitive, Cunningham collaborated with a wide range of composers, designers, and artists, incorporating video into pieces, and employing computerized choreography in his later years to instruct members of his company. Unlike most choreographers, movement itself was his principal subject matter--neither narrative nor musical form determines the dance structure. Cunningham leaves a vast legacy, but he expressed his view of his art saying, "Dancing is the art of the present tense." Cunningham himself, along with his dancers, collaborators, and observers, traces the course of his long career and that of his dance company. Topics include: his special qualities as a dancer; his performances as a member of Martha Graham's company; his choreographic approach and sources of inspiration; his longtime association and collaboration with composer John Cage; his residency at Black Mountain College; the development of his use of chance procedures; the early years of his company; his preference for avant-garde music, and his collaborations with various composers; and his use of technological innovations such as the computer program Life forms
Who gets to call it art? : the legend of Henry Geldzahler, 1935-1994 by Peter Rosen( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Geldzahler (1935-94), star curator and cultural impresario, lived a life worth examining. The first curator of the Department of 20th-Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum, first director of visual arts for the National Endowment of the Arts, and the first full-time commissioner of cultural affairs for New York City, his landmark 1969 show at the Metropolitan is still remembered with awe. "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" filled 35 galleries with more than 400 groundbreaking works of contemporary art. This film is not a full biographical examination of this singular figure's life, but rather a portrait in profile, as many of 'his' artists talk about Geldzahler and what his friendship meant to them
