Since we talked about Rauschenberg in class this morning, this has been on my mind.
If you haven't been to see the incredible exhibition of Rauschenberg Combines at MOCA, you must make the time. The show continues through September 4. I will definitely be going at least one more time. I wish I would be able to go to the art talk tomorrow night, but alas I will be giving a lecture on Romanesque architecture.

Paul Schimmel , MOCA chief curator,
discusses Robert Rauschenberg: Combines
Thursday, July 27 at 6:30pm
MOCA Grand Avenue, Ahmanson Auditorium
The most complete survey of these unique works ever mounted, this exhibition features more than 70 key Combines created between 1954–1964, an exceptionally productive period in Robert Rauschenberg’s career. From the early 1950s on, Rauschenberg broke down traditional boundaries between painting and sculpture and forged new ground in a multitude of media to invent an artistic expression uniquely his own.
