  • Catalogue Essay

    ‘Where does beauty begin and where does it end? Where it ends is where the artist begins. In this way we get our navigation done for us. If you hear that Rauschenberg has painted a new painting, the wisest thing to do is to drop everything and manage one way or another to see it. That’s how to learn the way to use your eyes, sunup the next day.’ (John Cage, ‘On Robert Rauschenberg, Artist, and his work’ in Metro, Milan, May, 1961)
