global matters: rauschenberg print media 1968–1975

The UWM Department of Art History’s biennial Art Museum Studies Seminar presents Global Matters: Rauschenberg Print Media 1968-1975, a selection of works from the UWM Art Collection by Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008). These prints, posters, and “cardbirds” embody the artist’s larger, global concerns, among them conservation of the natural world.

I was involved in the curation and exhibition design for Global Matters. I also contributed to the catalogue with an essay that examined a specific print that I researched and analyzed how it fit into both the history and iconography of Rauschenberg's practice.

Global Matters was on view from April 22nd through May 9th, 2015 in the Art History Gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. 

(Catalogue coming soon.)
