Robert Rauschenberg - Man at Work
(DVD 57 minutes)
One of the most influential American artists of this century, Robert Rauschenberg possesses an indefatigable zeal for fusing real life with art. For the last fifty years, his art has encompassed all manner of experimentation and a vast array of media, including silk screening, printmaking and photography. The highlight of this program is Rauschenberg's autobiographical work, the multi-paneled "The 1/4 Mile or 2 Furlong Piece." Seen for the first time in its entirety, this monumental work-in-progress exemplifies the originality and genius of an artist always ahead of his time.
