This past summer, I got to see the exhibit “Rauschenberg in China” while walking around the 798 Arts District in Beijing. I was just reading the Penn Arts and Culture Weekly email, and saw Rauschenberg in one of the headers, so I was immediately reminded of this exhibit. His work is really vivid and nostalgia-evoking and a bit cacophonous to me. It’s interesting to see how intertwined Rauschenberg was with modern art in China throughout the late 90s (he made several visits to China and exhibited his work). He’s a really global artist, and you could argue he brings a lot of cultures together. Really interesting stuff!
