Rauschenberg: Reflections and Ruminations 2 for 1 Tickets

Aug 26, 2020 - Mar 20, 2021


Considered to be one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century and with more than 50 original artworks spanning 1962-2008, made up of major loans from private and institutional collections, this is the largest solo exhibition of Robert Rauschenberg's work ever presented in Colorado. Typically, seen in larger museums, the MOA indoor galleries offer an intimate setting to view these magnificent works.

The exhibition explores Rauschenberg’s distinctively thoughtful process, by which he reproduced, transferred, multiplied and borrowed images and objects to revisit the experiences of his very full life. While connected with the broader trends of Pop art—especially in his use of images and objects from the media and consumer culture—Rauschenberg was able to infuse his works with an especially personal and intimate flavor, freely mixing content both from the wider world and from his own life.

Also on view is our Cabinet of Curiosities and Impossibilites, a permanent installation at MOA's indoor galleries. Based partly on nursery rhyme and partly on fairy tale, this installation is loved by both adults and kids!
