The Scenarios on exhibit, from 2002-2004 and measuring approximately 7 by 10 feet, illustrate commonplace scenes and objects derived from Rauschenberg's vast archive of found and self-generated imagery. The paintings reveal a variety of environments including, rural America, southern, warm climate regions, and New York City.

In his discussion of Rauschenberg’s photo-based, large-scale panels, Hijuelos states the Scenarios “are massive ‘super’ multilayered paintings that tell stories and cry out about American life; they are panoramas that have an epic quality.” Through a dramatic assemblage of images, the paintings become documentary narratives that serve as a historical record of a distinct time and place in the modern world.

Robert Rauschenberg: Scenarios is one of six upcoming exhibitions devoted to the artist’s work in 2005-2006. In Spring 2005, an exhibition of Scenarios will be on view at the Miami Art Museum from March 4 to July 3, 2005 and an exhibition of Rauschenberg’s fine art posters will be on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art from March 10 to June 19, 2005. In March 2005, the artist will be awarded the International Prize “Julio Gonzalez” for lifetime work by the Institut Valencia d’Art Modern.

The University Museum of Art at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, LA will also present an exhibition of Scenarios from May 21 to August 31, 2005.

Concurrently at UMA, an exhibition of collaborative works Rauschenberg made with Darryl Pottorf and an exhibition of photography by Christopher Rauschenberg, the artist’s son, will be on view. In Summer 2005, the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain in Nice, France will present an exhibition of Rauschenberg’s work that will be on view from June through November 2005.

The year concludes with a major exhibition of Rauschenberg’s Combines opening The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY in December 2005. Organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, LA, the exhibition will travel to MOCA, LA, the Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

Robert Rauschenberg’s work has been the subject of numerous solo shows and retrospectives around the world including most recently The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (1987); Whitney Museum of American Art (1990); Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (and tour 1997-9); the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2002); and the Wadsworth Museum of Art, Hartford (2004).
