In 1990, aged 31, Keith Haring dies in New York from aids after a very in excess life. A brief but intense career that spanned the 1980s, Haring’s work was featured in over 100 solo and group exhibitions. He has been one of the most celebrated artist of his time and today, every body recognizes is uncomparable style and inconic signature. He has been part of exhibitions together with Andy Wharol, Jean-Michel Basquait, Roy Lichenstien or Daniel Buren as early as 1982 and now in the most important museums.
The Paris Museum of Modern Art and le 104 have opened their doors to one of the biggest retrospectives of the artist.Over 250 pieces including 15 big size ones as well as sculptures will be exhibited.
An oppotunity to discover the very political aspect of his work. An era art was considered as the way to warn about the dangers and the beautys of the time. From the US to the Paris years, from apartheid to homosexuality, from graffiti to religion, from nuclear dangers to aids, from underground to celebrity, a journey back in the 80’s and a great nostalgia of this golden times to me.
