Currier Museum of Art opens Signs from the Sixties: Robert Indiana’s Decade

The Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH presents, Signs from the Sixties: Robert Indiana’s Decade an exhibition on view from November 27, 2013 through April 30, 2014.

In the 1960s, Pop artist Robert Indiana achieved worldwide acclaim for his bold, graphical images composed of geometric shapes, short words and numbers, including his popular LOVE design, which he used in paintings, sculptures and even a postage stamp in 1973. This exhibition features ten large, colorful silkscreen prints that formed Indiana’s important portfolio entitled Decade. The original silkscreens are composed of symbols and words that reflect Indiana’s response to both the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War and art created by notable gay Americans. Indiana’s painting Decade Autoportrait, 1963 (1971), a new acquisition in the Currier collection, will be on view in the exhibition as a complement to these works on paper.
