Rauschenberg’s Mud Muse – Part 2 | AT THE MUSEUM



The art of mud-making involves more than a little dirt and water. Moderna Museet’s Gunnar Marklund leads the MoMA staff in pouring, mixing, and massaging the Museum’s mud to the perfect consistency for Robert Rauschenberg’s “Mud Muse,” on display next week in #RauschenbergAmongFriends.

Watch Part 3 of Rauschenberg’s Mud Muse

Rauschenberg’s “Mud Muse” (1968-1971) consists of a large metal tank that contains nearly 1000 gallons of bentonite clay mixed with water. Sound-activated pneumatic tubes installed in its base pump air through the mud in response to a tape recording of the sounds of the burbling clay itself.

“Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends“ opens May 21, 2017. Learn more: http://mo.ma/amongfriends
