LACMA: After-Hours Curator-Led Walkthrough of Rauschenberg: The 1/4 Mile

LACMA has extended an invitation for our alumni to attend their after-hours curator-led tour of exhibition Rauschenberg: The 1/4 Mile on Thursday, November 15. This program is part of their young patron membership group called Avant-Garde (further description of the Avant-Garde membership below).

Join Katia Zavistovski, Assistant Curator of Modern Art, for a walkthrough of Rauschenberg: The 1/4 Mile. A pioneering artist of the last century, Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) refused to be contained by one style, medium, or movement. Throughout his career he experimented with, and often combined, painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, set design, choreography, and sound. Rauschenberg’s monumental The 1/4 Mile or 2 Furlong Piece (1981-98) exemplifies the broad scope of his artistic practice. Created over 17 years, the work is made out of 190 panels and freestanding sculpture that together measure approximately one quarter mile in length. Rauschenberg sourced many of the materials he used to make the piece from his travels throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, northern Africa, and the U.S., including textiles, mass media images, and everyday objects such as chairs and traffic lights. An audio track of sounds recorded during his travels accompanies the work. LACMA’s presentation is the first time The 1/4 Mile or 2 Furlong Piece will be exhibited in its entirety, and the first time any portion of the work will be on view on the West Coast.

Complimentary parking is available in the Pritzker Parking Garage, located on Sixth Street, just east of Fairfax Avenue.

LACMA has generously provided up to 30 spaces for Columbia SoCal alumni. In consideration of fellow alumni, please do not RSVP unless you are sure you will attend.
