Spreads 1975-83 / Robert Rauschenberg
Nov 28, 2018 – Feb 9, 2019
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac
London, UK

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London, together with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, presents the first UK exhibition dedicated to the American artist’s remarkable Spreads, a series that occupies an important position in his oeuvre.

The large-scale Spreads (1975–83) encapsulate many of Robert Rauschenberg’s best-known motifs and materials. Twelve key works from the series – the largest of which stretches to over six meters wide – will go on view at Ropac’s London gallery. An integral series of paper collages from the same period will also be exhibited, incorporating fabrics and techniques that relate to the Spreads series.

“They are more like ideas than objects – reels of association run through the projector of a mind unusually sensitive to the up-and-down jangles of modern life.” –Thomas B. Hess

    Adrianna Ault was raised in New Orleans where a 350 mile levee system controls and holds back flood waters.

The levee became a metaphor for the barriers built in an attempt to ward off inevitable decline, and the onslaught of time and nature. (more…)
