The exhibition begins with a look back at Rauschenberg’s experiments at Black Mountain College - it’s where the artist first explored photography and the place he collaborated with other creatives like composer John Cage and choreographer, Merc Cunningham. It’s also where Rauschenberg began integrating scraps of rubbish into his art – creating a series of what he named “Combines” (hybrids of painting and sculpture) – many of which are on show at the Tate.
Other exhibits include fantastic works of fabrics, such as the “Jammers” abstractions, a selection of innovative inkjet paintings and several translucent textile images.
