Visitation I  (1965)

Lithographic print by Rauschenberg, this is one of those images you look at and think I wish I had done that. Sometimes it gets fucking repetitive making litho print like mine and I want to do something that requires a little less precision and doesnt matter if you make a mistake. The outcome isnt predetermined.

Not really my sort of thing, but still an impressive and vast collection of works.

I couldn’t really relate to anything, and have never actually heard of this artist before. I think having some prior background knowledge of her work before seeing this exhibition would have been advisable.

The video/film projection pictured above was one of the few pieces I felt i could actually engage with, but other than that everything stretched over  such a broad range of materials and techniques that I couldn’t really get ‘into’ the exhibition.
