10:00 a.m.

On the occasion of the major retrospective Robert Rauschenberg: Erasing the Rules, SFMOMA is convening scholars and artists to consider the artist’s engagement with photography throughout the course of his career.

The morning session offers a look at Rauschenberg’s agile use of photographic images, explores his late transfer works, and brings together contemporary artists to respond to the artist’s work.

During the afternoon, we invite everyone into the galleries for focused discussions of artworks on display in Robert Rauschenberg: Erasing the Rules.

Schedule and program notes available here.
