VernissageTV Classics (r3): Robert Rauschenberg and Darryl Pottorf at Jamileh Weber (2006)

May 6, 2011

On July 15, 2006 Galerie Jamileh Weber in Zurich opened an exhibition with a selection of works by Robert Rauschenberg and new works by Robert Rauschenberg’s former assistant Darryl Pottorf. The exhibition was quite unique in that the selection of works by Rauschenberg presented in this show are all works that the artist kept for his own collection. In this video, we attend the opening reception of the exhibition.

Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) came to prominence in the 1950s transition from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art. Robert Rauschenberg was both a painter and a sculptor. He is well-known for his “Combines” that are a combination of both. He also worked with photography, printmaking, papermaking, and performance. In 1993 he was awarded the National Medal of Arts. Robert Rauschenberg lived and worked in New York City as well as on Captiva Island, Florida until his death on May 12, 2008.

This is the fifth segment in our new series r3 that highlights the treasures of VernissageTV’s huge archive. R3 is a series of VernissageTV classics, now re-mastered, re-edited and reissued in High Definition. Click here for the complete list of videos.
