Keith Haring at the Tate Liverpool
The Tate Liverpool Museum is holding a new Keith Haring’s exhibition until November, 2019. Visitors to the exhibition will see more than 85 artworks including large, vibrant paintings and drawings. Also on display are posters, photographs, and videos that capture the vibrancy of 1980s New York street culture.
A part of the legendary New York art scene of the 1980s, Keith Haring was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Haring was a great collaborator and worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were interested in creating art for the many and, in doing so, activism played a key role in Haring’s art. Compelled to speak for his generation, his art responds to urgent issues including political dictatorship, racism, homophobia, drug addiction, AIDS awareness, capitalism and the environment.
