Robert Rauschenberg, Susan Weil

Robert Rauschenberg holding a blueprint by Susan Weil and himself in their West Ninety-Fifth Street apartment, New York, 1951.

The story goes something like this: In 1951, as Weil recounted to me, Rauschenberg—then twenty-five—visited the offices of Life magazine to drum up interest in the couple’s work. Staff photographer Wallace Kirkland was dispatched to their tiny one-room apartment on the Upper West Side (they shared a kitchen and bathroom with a neighbor) to document their process. The fruits of that shoot, along with an accompanying unsigned, short text, appeared in the magazine’s April 9 issue; several black-and-white photos of Weil and Rauschenberg at work were reproduced alongside some of the resulting blueprint pictures in a three-page spread. In Weil’s telling, after Kirkland left the apartment, she and Rauschenberg had a dinner of cereal because it was all they could afford.

"The east London studio of Michael Landy is located in what was once a storage facility for fruit and vegetables. It is one of two work spaces he has in this part of the city: the second is a light industrial building in Bethnal Green where, he explains, ‘I make a mess’. Of this studio, he says, ‘This is my thinking space. It is where I read, daydream and come up with ideas.’

"Oldenburg and his wife Coosje van Bruggen displayed Spoonbridge and Cherry at the Walker Art Center’s Minneapolis Sculpture Garden in 1988. According to the center, the spoon weighs 5,800 pounds and the cherry weighs an extra 1,200 pounds. The cherry’s stem functions as a fountain, spraying water into the bowl of the spoon and the pond beneath it." (bron: CBC)
