Made possible by Tate Modern in collaboration with New York's Museum of Modern Art, the exhibition is a rare insight into the modern American master's six-decade spanning career.

'Pledge', 1968.

He famously worked across all mediums - including performance art, sculpture and collage - endlessly combining and contrasting materials. Stuffed goats and neckties, tires, grass, waste metal and all sorts of scraps had artistic merit in his hands. These cast-offs are how he began every work. It was the challenge he put to himself, to make the ugly or unwanted beautiful in some way.
