ROBERT INDIANA: A - Z follows the 77 year ongoing career of this seminal artist from 1934 to his current work in 2011/2012. Featured are his icons – EAT, LOVE and HOPE and his latest masterpiece, THE ALPHABET, in many ways, the culmination of a his journey as the world’s premiere Word Artist. The exhibition presents more than 75 works showcasing Indiana’s unique method of working on paper, canvas, print, and in three dimensions with the same image.

Born in Indiana [real name: Robert Clark] in 1928, he graduated from the Chicago Art Institute where fellow students included Pop Artist Claes Oldenberg, Red Grooms, and Photorealist, Richard Estes­­­. Indiana was one of the six founding fathers of Pop Art along with Andy Warhol. Warhol made the infamous film EAT about Indiana, the only artist about whom Warhol ever made a film. Indiana’s LOVE, conceived originally as a postcard for New York’s Museum of Modern Art, is one of the most recognizable works in American Art and was rendered as sculptures, paintings, drawings, and prints, globally exhibited, and also as a U.S. Postage stamp. Indiana’s work is in over 1000 collections in 100 countries including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum, The Whitney Museum, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Stedelijk Museum and The Louvre.

The exhibition was organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions in association Rosenbaum Fine Art, Boca Raton, FL and with Michael McKenzie, former American Director of The Museum of Modern Art, Sao Paulo. McKenzie is the author of over 20 books in 30 languages including the highly influential ART FOR THE 80s [Abbeville], and monographs on Robert Indiana, Donald Sultan and Larry Rivers.

Exhibition Dates are available 2014 - 2016. A catalogue has been published.
