Description

Keith Haring is regarded as a key figure in the New York art scene of the 1980s. Like almost no other artist, he managed to bridge the gap between the art scene and subculture, between a wide audience and experts. His works thrill with their accessibility, while addressing highly political topics such as homophobia, racism and the AIDS crisis. The genuinely open character of his works – one encounters them on poster spaces in the subway, on the walls of buildings, or in pop-up stores – and his political activism maintain an unbroken relevance to this day. Darren Pih, curator of the large Keith Haring retrospective at Tate Liverpool in 2019, presents this long-overlooked side of Keith Haring’s oeuvre.
