#Reposting @pacegallery -- Robert Rauschenberg's "Vydock" series – large-scale works of acrylic paint, silkscreened images of #RobertRauschenberg’s own photographs and graphite on white aluminum, have rarely been seen since their initial exhibition in 1995. In collaboration with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation (@rauschenbergfoundation), we're honored to be bringing these works to new light in our recently-opened space in Hong Kong's H Queen's building, opening with a special reception Tuesday, September 18, on view through November 2, 2018. #RauschenbergVydocks
“#Rauschenberg was a tireless innovator in a constant quest to capture our common yet also intrinsically personal experience of the ephemerality of time and our shifting perceptions and recollections of the world around us,” said @MarcGlimcher, Pace Gallery President and CEO. “He was not an artist bound to a particular medium or set of rules, rather he consistently challenged existing parameters of art and prevailing frameworks of modernism. While the Vydock series represents a pivotal phase of Rauschenberg’s ever-evolving practice – uniting his early and late works and introducing key motifs into his creative arsenal; these works have gone largely unseen and underappreciated since they were first shown over twenty years ago. With this exhibition, we are thrilled to take a critical step to change that course, and honored to reintroduce the series to Rauschenberg scholars, collectors and the public alike.”
On the occasion of the exhibition, Pace will publish a full-color catalogue with an essay, in both English and traditional Chinese, by American poet and critic John Yau.
