Elegy for Robert Rauschenberg
Robert Rauschenberg: Combines
Curated by Paul Schimmel, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

“This elegy is dedicated to the memory of Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) and to the memory of his friendship with my late husband, Earle Brown (1926-2002), whose music has been intertwined and juxtaposed here with images of the glorious Combines.”

Susan Sollins-Brown, Executive Director, Art21

“People ask me, ‘Don’t you ever run out of ideas?’ In the first place I don’t use ideas. Every time I have an idea it’s too limiting, and usually turns out to be a disappointment. But I haven’t run out of curiosity.” Robert Rauschenberg
