Robert Rauschenberg: Erasing the Rules

Composition, taste, symmetry, order—Robert Rauschenberg broke all the rules and rejected comparison with other artists. By collecting and presenting everyday experiences and objects, including tin cans, Coke bottles, newspapers, and tires, Rauschenberg’s work invites us to “look somewhere else” and change the way we see the world.
