Robert Rauschenberg, Climb (Urban Bourbon), 1993.

Pace is pleased to present Robert Rauschenberg: Channel Surfing, an exhibition of more than thirty works by the renowned American artist at 540 West 25th Street in New York. Running from September 10 to October 23, 2021, the presentation focuses on Rauschenberg’s response to the rise of global media culture from the early 1980s to the mid-2000s. Spotlighting Rauschenberg’s return to painting after a decade-long hiatus from the medium, this exhibition examines the artist’s development of a radical new approach to his canvases that combined elements of photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Robert Rauschenberg: Channel Surfing traces the artist’s creation of a visual language that addresses fundamental transformations in media culture in the late 20th-century, a period marked by the apotheosis of television and the emergence of the internet.
