NEW YORK, NY.- Simon Salama-Caro, who began working as a gallerist with Robert Indiana in 1988, devoting the next few decades to safeguarding and advancing Indiana’s artistic achievement, has announced the formation of The Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative, LLC.

Simon Salama-Caro is preparing the Catalogue Raisonné of Robert Indiana’s paintings and sculpture 1955-2007, to be published online in 2023.

Simon Salama-Caro said, “The Legacy Initiative continues the efforts my family and I have made over many years to foster a widespread understanding of Robert Indiana’s achievement as one of the great artists of his time.”

From 1995 onwards, Salama-Caro worked with Indiana as his exclusive world-wide representative for the authorized production, sale, and promotion of such Indiana sculpture series as LOVE (1966), ART (1972), AHAVA (1977), ONE Through ZERO (The Ten Numbers) (1978), and AMOR (1998).

Salama-Caro and his family will work closely and collaboratively with the Star of Hope Foundation, a not-for-profit organization created by the artist Robert Indiana. The Foundation expects that royalties from the sale of works in such sculpture series, offered through Simon Salama-Caro, and from a licensing agreement managed by the family will help fund the Star of Hope Foundation’s arts related programs.

Established to increase awareness among curators, scholars, collectors, art-market professionals, and the public at large of the depth and breadth of Indiana’s work, The Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative will:

•maintain a collection and archive of Robert Indiana’s art

•encourage and support exhibitions and public installations of Robert Indiana’s work, such as the current exhibition Robert Indiana: Sculpture 1958-2018 at Yorkshire Sculpture Park and its accompanying catalogue

•enable and promote scholarly research on the artist

•manage the website and distribute a newsletter
