Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends

Our must-see museum pick of the week is Robert Rauschenberg’s MoMA retrospective, Among Friends. Presenting over 250 works over the course of his six-decade career, the exhibition highlights the social nature of artist’s oeuvre. “My whole area of art has always been addressed to working with other people,” he reflected. “Ideas are not real estate.” The exhibition is open through September 17th, so be sure to catch it before it closes!

“To highlight the importance of exchange for Rauschenberg, this exhibition is structured as an “open monograph”—as other artists came into Rauschenberg’s creative life, their work comes into these galleries, mapping the play of ideas.”
