Keith Haring

Tate Liverpool, Britannia Vaults, 115 The Colonnades, Liverpool, L3 4AB, United Kingdom

A part of the legendary New York art scene of the 1980s, Keith Haring (1958–1990) 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. Haring designed record covers for RUN DMC and David Bowie, directed a music video for Grace Jones and developed a fashion line with Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood. In doing so, he introduced his art and ideas to as many people as possible.



Discover how 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.



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.
