Robert Indiana's Work Arrives in Hong Kong

LOVE Long: Robert Indiana and Asia
Asia Society Hong Kong Center
February 7–July 15, 2018

"LOVE Long: Robert Indiana and Asia expands our knowledge of Robert Indiana with an exploration of his multifarious use of text throughout his six-decade-long career. Along with Indiana, the exhibition features eight artists and art groups from Asia whose artistic interactions with text generate diverse conceptual outcomes. They are selected based on the artistic merit of their works which challenge what words mean in a conventional sense.

There are various languages at play in the gallery: Indiana’s main poetic device is English but he has also worked in Spanish and Chinese. Other featured artists utilized Arabic, ancient Chinese, and Japanese. LOVE Long brings together different systems of meaning in the context of Hong Kong’s unique cultural setting.

In our fast-paced contemporary world, no one seems to have time or patience to read more than headlines and hashtags. We consume text as information and language has been stripped of its poetic potential. The works on view prompt the audience to contemplate the art of language and the subtle differences between what is said and what is meant.

This exhibition is curated by Dr. Miwako Tezuka, with Kaitlin Chan serving as assistant curator."
