Robert Rauschemberg
On the occasion of the Los Angeles MOCA’s Robert Rauschemberg exhibition, Helen Molesworth, the museum’s chief curator; Megan R. Luke, Art History professor at USC; and artist Harry Dodge talk about Rauschemberg’s work and his figure as one of the most important artists in the second half of the Twentieth Century.

Rauschemberg (1925 – 2008) adopted the term “Combine” to define his work and his technique. The term carried two meanings: on the one hand, the fusion of painting and sculpture; on the other, the craft of combining different materials such as everyday objects, fabrics, and newsprint, among others.

With the incorporation of real-life objects, intervened with materials used in the art sphere at the time, Rauschemberg’s work breaks with the preconceived idea of what was understood as sculpture, which places his oeuvre and his legacy in a space between art and the everyday.
