Rachel Harrison’s Untitled (from Heir Fresheners) comes from the artist’s exhibition catalogue, GLORIA, which was published on the occasion of the artist’s 2015 exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The double page spread introduces Heir Fresheners – a section of digital collages that the artist made for the publication in which she pairs images of her work alongside those by Robert Rauschenberg. Harrison specifically designed this opening section with the script presented in Park Avenue font; a clear reference to Pat Hearn Gallery and a marker of Pat’s influence on Rachel – and her generation – even to this day.
The print comes with a complimentary copy of the exhibition catalogue, GLORIA. Linking two influential figures in American art, this fascinating catalogue explores the intersection between works by modern master Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) and innovative contemporary artist Rachel Harrison (b. 1966). Taking its name from Gloria, an iconic Rauschenberg work in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the book covers multiple aspects of Harrison’s career thus far, and uses her work as a lens to explore the lasting influence of Rauschenberg.
