Rauschenberg Proposal

The exhibition will center on Robert Rauschenberg’s Erased De Kooning, and feature works by other artist who have appropriated other artworks into their own work. One of Rauschenberg’s most recognizably pieces, Combine, is less about appropriation of art and more about found objects. An obvious path for curators to take, however in the age of digital media the appropriation of artwork seems like a more relevant subject. This is due to the accessibility to art and information the internet has given us. The ease in which information and art can be stolen or “appropriated” on the internet has created dialogue about copyright and opened the floor for further questions about what can be a found object and who it can come from. In our show we will have works from artists like Banksy and Richard Price. I would like to have among these works more of a performance piece in which Banksy, or a representative, will hang his work on to other paintings as he did in the Louvre and Museum of Modern art. The video works will be show in a separate space or at a certain time in the gallery opening. The video and sound pieces will be important to exploring how appropriated sound and film can be used in a new creation.
