Beginning July 14, Phoenix Art Museum will present an original exhibition of rarely-shown prints by two giants of twentieth-century art, providing a fascinating new insight into the innovative, mutually influential practices of two artists.
Rauschenberg and Johns: The Blurring of Art and Life will showcase more than 20 works on paper, all drawn from the Museum’s collection, by neo-Dada artists Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns that present a lesser-known side of their artistic practices. These rare works detail a fascinating visual conversation between two of modern art’s most influential creators, evident in their comparable use of collage and mixed media in service of multiple, often uncertain, meanings.
