Robert Indiana and Asia

LOVE Long Robert Indiana and Asia is published by Asia Society Hong Kong Center on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition. Edited by the curator, Miwako Tezuka, and the Center’s Gallery Team, the book explores text based art through the works of preeminent American artist Robert Indiana in conversation with eight contemporary artists and collectives from Asia Kutlug Ataman, *Candy Factory Projets (Takuji Kogo + Young Hae-Chang Heavy Industries), Chim Pom, He An, Hung Keung, Charwei Tsai and Xu Bing. The contents of the publication include four essays and a catalogue of the exhibition with over 50 color artwork plates. The publication opens with a curatorial overview essay by Miwako Tezuka, followed by a contribution by Susan Elizabeth Ryan, a foremost Indiana scholar. The subsequent essay by assistant curator Kaitlin Chan reflects on Indiana’s “signs” in a Hong Kong context, preceding a revised version of an essay by artist Xu Bing, whose works are in the exhibition, on the pictographic origins of Chinese characters.
