Keith Haring at the Brooklyn Museum
Last Sunday, we checked out “Keith Haring: 1978-1982” at the Brooklyn Museum. Featuring over 300 works that include drawings, paintings, collages, videos, as well as archival objects such as journals, photos, and subway drawings, the exhibition focuses on the artist’s first years in New York City as a student at the School of Visual Arts, offering a window into both his artistic and personal journey as a rising star in the art world and a presence in the downtown scene. It also includes a soundtrack created specifically to accompany the exhibition. What was particularly interesting for us was to see so many early works that had never been shown before, as well gain insight into Haring’s creative process. Some highlights:
