This exhibition presents some of the most memorable works by the legendary American artist Robert Indiana (b.1928) along with works by eight artists and collectives from Asia: Kutluğ Ataman, Candy Factory, Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries, Chim↑Pom, He An, Hung Keung, Charwei Tsai, and Xu Bing. Threading through these multilingual, multicultural works is a sustained investigation of language. These artists share poetic sensibilities with Indiana, creating work that examines the nuances between words and images. LOVE Long affirms that art is a universal language built upon the fundamental human desire to express and communicate.
