The Glass House presents Robert Rauschenberg: Spreads and Related Works, a group of paintings and works on paper chosen to compliment the painting Recital (Spread), 1980 which Philip Johnson purchased that same year. Rauschenberg’s Spreads series are composed of wooden panels to which he applied acrylic, solvent transferred imagery, paper collage, fabric and colored or mirrored plastics and commonplace objects such as fans, pillows, buckets and lights. This interplay between two and three dimensions and between wall and ground had been a part of Rauschenberg’s creative process throughout his career. This exhibition was organized by David White, Senior Curator of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
