THERE’S STILL TIME TO CATCH THE WHITNEY’S ROBERT INDIANA RETROSPECTIVE

Robert Indiana: Beyond LOVE,” a new exhibition currently at the Whitney Museum, explores the career of an instrumental figure in the Pop Art movement. A self proclaimed “sign painter”, Indiana appropriated words and symbols into his work, representing the landscape of post war America. He examined American identity — tackling themes including death, forgiveness, and love. He is known worldwide for his LOVE paintings and sculptures which have come to represent tolerance and unity. He has received  both praise and criticism for reaching mass commercial success. In a career that has spanned over fifty years, his work continues to be embraced by an international audience.

The exhibition which is curated by Barbara Haskell runs through January 5, 2014.
