Product Details

Praise

Branden W. Joseph has embarked upon the ambitious project of reconstructing the essential part of Robert Rauschenberg’s oeuvre…persuasively shown that Rauschenberg, together with [John] Cage, represents a specific and distinct instance of the American neo-avant-garde.—Ales Erjavec , Modernism/Modernity

…succeeds in highlighting an anarchic and gratuitously radical streak in Rauschenberg’s early practice that is worth attending to, one that is neither a repeat of earlier avant-garde gesturings nor simply an accommodation to the values and commodifying mechanisms of postwar American consumer society.

Alex Potts, Art Bulletin

The strongest passages deal with individual works in depth and with remarkable sensitivity to context. A chapter devoted to Rauschenberg’s live performances is outstanding.

James Lawrence, Burlington Magazine

Those interested in the interrelationship of various modern arts genres will find this book especially illuminating.
