The Early Works of Keith Haring: 1978-1982

The public has a right to art. Art is for everybody.
-Keith Haring

Keith Haring ranks among the most iconic, influential and popular artists in the world. Opening twenty years after his death, Keith Haring: 1978–1982 is a rare and in-depth look at the prolific early years that established Haring’s language as an artist, his politics and social conscience, and his open homosexuality. The historic exhibition opened on March 16th at the Brooklyn Museum and chronicles the early career of Keith Haring in New York City, through the years when he opened his studio and took his art to the streets.

Organized by the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati and the Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna, the exhibition traces the development of Haring’s extraordinary visual vocabulary. Keith Haring: 1978–1982 includes 155 works on paper, numerous experimental videos and over 150 archival objects, including rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition flyers, posters, subway drawings and documentary photographs.
