The retrospective includes numerous important works that have only rarely been shown as well as intimate examples of the LOVE sculpture in semiprecious stone that have never been exhibited. Featuring significant loans from national and international museum and private collections, Robert Indiana: A Sculpture Retrospective offers a thorough reassessment of the artist’s work, from his earliest assemblages in recycled wood and iron of the late 1950s to his most recent series of painted bronzes, which are among the most complicated and fascinating bronze works of the contemporary era.
Following its presentation at the Albright-Knox, the exhibition will travel to the Tampa Museum of Art from October 2018 to March 2019. The accompanying catalogue, published by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in association with Kerber Verlag, is edited by Albright-Knox Deputy Director Joe Lin-Hill, with contributions by Lin-Hill, Albright-Knox Chief Curator Emeritus Douglas Dreishpoon, Albright-Knox Curator of Public Art Aaron Ott, Robert Hobbs, and Simon Salama-Caro.
This exhibition is organized by Dr. Joe Lin-Hill, Deputy Director, with support from Caroline Gerwitz, Associate, Executive Offices.
Admission to this special exhibition is Pay What You Wish on M&T FIRST FRIDAYS @ THE GALLERY.
