To bring in the new year London's TATE Modern Museum is showcasing an extensive retrospective exhibition of influential artist Robert Rauschenburg. Born in 1922, the American artist had a prolific career with work in painting and sculpture as well as photography, printmaking, papermaking, and performance, up until his death in 2008. Find more details on the exhibit below and at the TATE website.
 
Robert Rauschenberg blazed a new trail for art in the second half of the twentieth century.

This landmark exhibition celebrates his extraordinary six-decade career, taking you on a dazzling adventure through modern art in the company of a truly remarkable artist.

From paintings including flashing lights to a stuffed angora goat, Rauschenberg’s appetite for incorporating things he found in
 the streets of New York knew no limits. Pop art silkscreen paintings of Kennedy sit alongside 1000 gallons of bentonite mud bubbling to its own rhythm. Rauschenberg even made a drawing which was sent to the moon.
