THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2024 at 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM: Curator Anne Wilkes Tucker and arts editor Catherine Anspon of Paper City Magazine discuss “Christopher Rauschenberg: Studio Photography,” an immersive exhibition of past, present and future history of the artist’s work.

Wilkes Tucker is Curator Emerita of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where she founded the photography department in 1976. The museum’s collection now comprises 30,000 photographs made on all seven continents. Anspon just celebrated 20 years at Paper City Magazine where she is the arts editor for the publication. In addition to writing about art, Catherine has been an invaluable connector of creatives and a champion for artists in Texas and beyond.

Wilkes Tucker and Anspon have both known Rauschenberg and his work for the last several decades. Together, they will guide attendees through a look at the artist’s insightful, joy-filled exhibition.

MARCH 15 – APRIL 27, 2024: ELLIO Fine Art presents “Christopher Rauschenberg: Studio Photography,” an immersive exhibition of past, present and future history of his work.

Hailing from a family of notable artists, visual artist Christopher Rauschenberg began honing his own craft of photography in the early 1970s. His innate ability to tell a unique story through the capturing of well-known Parisian landmarks led to Princeton Architectural Press’s publishing of “Paris Changing: Revisiting Eugène Atget’s Paris.”

Transcendent of time, Rauschenberg presents an immersive experience of past, present, and future history with his work. As the cofounder and president of multiple galleries and exhibition spaces, Rauschenberg carries the legacy of influencing myriad artists – as well as co-curating and exhibiting for nearly eight hundred solo artists. Residing in Portland, Oregon, he has traveled and photographed in thirty-four countries, and his work has become a permanent fixture in over a dozen prestigious museums.

ARTIST STATEMENT: “I grew up having three artist parents, I’ve been a photographer since 1957 or 1973, depending on how you count, and I’ve been a curator since 1975. Consequently, I am happy to find myself in artist studios often. I’m primarily there to look at their art but I love to savor the delightful conjunctions of objects and images in those studios: two- and three-dimensional collages that both create and result from the powerful artistic charge that is the lifeblood of an artist’s studio.”
