6. Robert Indiana’s Sculptures on the Kasmin Gallery Rooftop Garden
Visible from the High Line, Kasmin Gallery’s rooftop sculpture garden now houses three iconic Robert Indiana sculptures throughout the month of May 2019. Robert Indiana (1928-2018) began to focus on the theme of love in the mid-1960s, creating one of the most famous and well-known works of art of the 20th century: his LOVE composite. Kasmin will display three sculptures from Indiana’s LOVE series, each sculpture representing the word in a different language: Hebrew, Spanish and English — three of New York City’s most influential dialects. The sculptures will celebrate the city’s diverse and colorful history as well as pay homage to the great artist.
Indiana’s LOVE, AMOR and AHAVA are on display and visible from The High Line on 27th Street, with the backdrop of the Zaha Hadid condo The rooftop exhibition will be accompanied by an indoor exhibition comprised of smaller iterations of the LOVE series in the High Line Nine gallery complex.
