OFFSET: Robert Rauschenberg At USF Graphicstudio Exhibition Opening Celebration
Donald J. Saff In Conversation With Dr. John Blakinger
Scholar Dr. John Blakinger will discuss the origins, experiences, and impacts of the Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange project with artistic director and founder of USF Graphicstudio, Donald J. Saff.
Following the conversation in Barness Hall, join us next door at the USF Contemporary Art Museum for a 7 – 9pm reception celebrating OFFSET: Robert Rauschenberg at USF Graphicstudio.
OFFSET: Robert Rauschenberg at USF Graphicstudio tells the story of Robert Rauschenberg’s long and fruitful collaboration with Donald J. Saff, founder of Graphicstudio in 1968, Distinguished Professor, Chair of the Art Department, and Founding Dean of the College of The Arts at the University of South Florida. Together, Rauschenberg and Saff worked on projects that had profound impacts locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. In addition to the artist’s experimentation across mediums, Rauschenberg’s legacy is explored through the works of artists that recall his radical approach to materials, process, and concepts, including Trisha Brown, Rochelle Feinstein, Christian Marclay, Narsiso Martinez, Bosco Sodi, and Tavares Strachan.
