Cv/VAR series no.176 reviews 'Jammers' by the celebrated American artist Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008), in an exhibition held at Gagosian Gallery, Britannia Street London, from 16th February to 28th March 2013. The series comes from a month in 1975 when the artist worked in an Ashram (textile factory) in Ahmedabad, India. He continued to develop the loose fabric structures in New York, bringing reference to sails of crafts (windjammers) and the sense of free natural movement. Born in Port Arthur, Texas in 1925 Rauschenberg attended Academie Julien and Black Mountain College, where he studied under Josef Albers. He worked with Jasper Johns and John Cage in the early 1950s, developing the famous 'combines', assemblages of found objects, and created the White and the Black paintings - presaging movements of Pop, Minimalist and Conceptual art of the following decades. Includes an essay on the artist's development 1952-62, his links with John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Jasper Johns. Studies 'The White Paintings','Black Paintings' and an interview with David White, long time colleague and friend, and Chief Curator of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
