TULSA, OK.- Philbrook Museum of Art’s summer exhibition, Rauschenberg at Gemini, celebrates the colorful innovations in printmaking and image making by post-war giant, Robert Rauschenberg. The exhibition is on view June 12 through September 11. For more than three decades Robert Rauschenberg created works at Gemini G.E.L., the influential workshop in West Hollywood, yielding over 250 editions of two- and three-dimensions from 1967-2001. Using materials as varied as cardboard, silk, window shades, and fluorescent lighting, as well as his own photographs of Los Angeles, Tibet, China, and Morocco. Rauschenberg joyfully pushed (and pulled) the boundaries of printmaking — in scale, scope, variation, and interactivity. Many of Rauschenberg’s most famous prints, print series, and multiples are included in the exhibition, such as Booster, the artist’s famous X-ray self-portrait and his first print at Gemini. Monu
