Robert Rauschenberg at Pace Gallery Hong Kong

No contributor

On Monday, Pace Gallery debuted the first Hong Kong solo exhibition of American modern artist Robert Rauschenberg. Coinciding with the opening of Art Basel Hong Kong, the exhibition features five works spanning 20 years of the artist’s career, combining painted, silkscreened, metal, and canvas works into a comprehensive display of the artist’s explorative two-dimensional works.

Rauschenberg, known as a “Neo-Dadaist” and pop art precursor, created paintings, sculptures, and in-between works before his passing in 2008. His series “Combines” incorporated trash from New York City streets into gestural collages, combining scribbled sweeps of paint with wrappers, stamps, bottles, and even taxidermy animals. Perhaps his most famous work, “Monogram,” features a shaggy taxidermy goat bound by a rubber tire, with colorful paint blotted on its face and a collaged platform base.

The exhibition, including works from his “Shiner, Spread and Urban Bourbon” series and Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange (ROCI) project, will be on view through May 12.
