Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008) was a groundbreaking and influential American artist who worked in diverse mediums over a six-decade career, including painting, sculpture, photography, performance, and printmaking. This exhibition highlights Rauschenberg’s extended artistic interest in China, from photographs made during his first trip there 1982 to the final large-scale graphic works he completed shortly before his death: The Lotus Series.

Presented in conjunction with Rauschenberg in China: The Lotus Series .
