Our August episode focuses on artist Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) and his Combine painting Collection (1954/1955). We'll hear archival audio of Rauschenberg himself discussing the work, as well as interviews with curator Sarah Roberts, editor Amanda Glesmann, and paintings conservator Paula De Cristofaro. These segments examine the work's title and materials, describe SFMOMA's conservation efforts relating to Collection, and introduce the Rauschenberg Research Project, a new online publication produced by SFMOMA under the auspices of the Getty Foundation's Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative.
Each SFMOMA Artcast brings you illuminating audio and video interviews with artists, curators, and visitors as they respond to the works on view and in the museum's collection.
This Artcast episode is part of our Conserving Rauschenberg Story Board, a digital hub for texts, dialogue, multimedia, and a constellation of outside links offering windows onto the worlds of SFMOMA artists and artworks.
