When Rauschenberg's monumental screenprint "Currents" was exhibited in 1970, he augmented it with an audio montage of contemporaneous news broadcasts. This audio component was recently rediscovered and digitized by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. 🎧⠀

"Rauschenberg: In and About L.A." presents "Currents" and its accompanying soundtrack for the first time in almost 50 years. ⠀
