The Ghost of Robert Rauschenberg is a 20 minute performance piece conceived by GAR and created in collaboration with Thomas Dougherty of Da Camera's Young Composer program, and mixed-media performance artist and current GAR resident, Autumn Knight.

Using Rauschenberg's biographies as a starting point, the piece is a reimagining of his seminal Noh Theater piece performed while he was a student at Black Mountain College, and references the landscape of the Gulf Coast, where he grew up and which continued to be an influence on his life and work.

The performance is free and open to the public, and will begin promptly at 6pm. Refreshments will be served following the performance. For additional information, or questions, please contact the GAR gallery at 409-974-4446, or info@galvestonartistresidency.org.
