Robert Indiana Retrospective to Open at Indianapolis Museum of Art


A retrospective of Robert Indiana’s graphic prints will be coming (appropriately) to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in May 2013. The show is called “The Essential Robert Indiana” and will feature over 50 of the artist’s prints, including works from the famous “LOVE” and “American Dream” series, as well as biographical materials.

This is the first retrospective of Mr. Indiana’s graphic prints since 1969. Martin Krause, exhibition curator and curator of prints, drawings and photographs at the IMA, said in a statement:

“The IMA was the first museum Robert Indiana ever knew and is one of the leading museums with a depth of holdings in his work, so this exhibition represents a homecoming for the artist on many levels. This exhibition will feature Indiana’s most complex, self-referential and autobiographical images, revealing new insights about the artist’s inspiration for many of these works.”
