The Tate Modern’s latest exhibition is now open – but what have critics been saying about it? Is it a success? 


The Guardian: ***** “From first to last, Tate Modern’s Robert Rauschenberg show is almost impossibly rich and rewarding.”

The Telegraph: ***** “It’s hard to overstate the influence of Robert Rauschenberg over the past 10 years.”

Art ” big, generous, and fascinating, abundant both in aesthetic pleasures and joyful experiences and in scholarly research.”

Evening Standard: **** ” dramatically uneven, but in part magnificent, retrospective.”

The Upcoming: **** “an astoundingly rich, immersive exhibition that shows art as lived and breathed by a master of its possibilities.”

City Am:  *** “It’s one hell of a history lesson; I just wish I’d enjoyed it a little more.”

The Times: ***** “probably the most significant show of his work to come to this country.”

Time Out: **** “But the show is staggering, exhausting and wide-ranging – just like Rauschenberg.”

Spindle Magazine: “his first posthumous retrospective and the most comprehensive survey of his work for 20 years – enables us not only to see his contribution to Twentieth and Twenty-First Century art, but also to think about problems which that art raises.”

The Financial Times: “Tate superbly chronicles how, with lightness of touch, an exuberant insistence on the arbitrary and youthful irreverence, Rauschenberg collapsed painting, printmaking, sculpture, performance, into hybrid collaborative forms.”

Robert Rauschenberg is on display at the Tate Modern until the 2nd April 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit:
