The first large-scale UK solo show of Rauschenberg's work consists mostly of art dating from the 1980s and 1990s.
The first large-scale exhibition of works by the great American artist Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008) in the UK for 30 years, it focuses on paintings and sculpture from the 1980s and 1990s, comprising 43 works which vary from the highly-polished, glamorous metallic Shiner and Borealis series that celebrate energy and motion, to the Gluts and Zephyr series that represent Rauschenberg's fascination with the discarded object. It follows previous solo exhibitions at Inverleith House by Rauschenberg's close friends and collaborators, Cy Twombly, John Cage and Merce Cunningham. In collaboration with the Rauschenberg Studio and Gagosian Gallery.
