BUFFALO, NY.- Recently the Albright-Knox Art Gallery opened Robert Indiana: A Sculpture Retrospective. The exhibition provides an in-depth exploration of one of America’s best known, but least understood artists. It will remain on view in the South Galleries of the museum’s 1905 Building through Sunday, September 23, 2018. With his career-defining LOVE sculpture, Robert Indiana (American, 1928–2018) created what is perhaps the most beloved public artwork of the twentieth century and one of the most iconic works in all of art history. Indiana’s works created prior to LOVE in the early 1960s were quickly embraced as classics of the burgeoning Pop art movement. However, his intensely autobiographical artwork consistently defied this narrow art historical categorization. [More]
