To coincide with the Rauschenberg. Express exhibition the Museum organised Rauschenberg/Cage: an Encounter. Music and Performance, in a session that aims to offer a joint presentation of the work of these two artists, friends and colleagues.
The programme comprised a concert by the group Plural Ensemble (voice, piano and percussion), conducted by Fabién Panillello, that includes John Cage´s most well-known compositions including Amores, In a Landscape, Dreams, A Room and Radio Music. It also featured the projection of parts of performances and choreographed works that Rauschenberg created during his years working with Merce Cunningham´s dance company, in which the famous northamerican composer John Cage was also involved. Pelican (1963), Map Room II (1965) and Spring Training (1965) were the titles of some of these works by the artist. Rauschenberg created not only the choreography, but also designed the sets, lighting and costumes as well as appearing himself in a number of them.
