In piles of accumulated objects including bicycles, Polaroids, and letters to famous friends, you can take a rare behind-the-scenes look at the late artist Robert Rauschenberg’s archive-in-progress. The interactive video series, which premieres on T Magazine, follows writer Dan Chiasson's exploration into Rauschenberg’s legacy in Mt. Vernon, NY, and the worlds of creativity the artist materialized.
Today on The Creators Project, you can watch three never-before-seen clips of Rauschenberg at work.
Of the archiving effort, Chiasson writes, "You could argue that the Foundation is creating, in a social space, a giant Rauschenberg: his final, most collaborative and most interactive environment, the ultimate manifestation of his wish to live inside of his art and to invite others in, too.”
