Arlington Museum of Art presents Keith Haring: Against All Odds
June 21 @ 10:00 am - September 15 @ 5:00 pm| $10
This summer, the Arlington Museum of Art is excited to host Keith Haring: Against All Odds. This is the first time that the Rubell Family collection, which features over 50 original works, has ever been exhibited in a museum.
ABOUT KEITH HARING
Bridging the gap between the traditional art world and alternative street culture, Keith Haring rose to prominence in the early 1980s with his New York City graffiti drawings. Combining the colorful, bold lines of cartoons with the raw energy of Art Brut artists like Jean DuBuffet, Haring developed a distinct pop-graffiti aesthetic centered on fluid, bold outlines against a dense, rhythmic overspread of iconic pop art imagery.
Haring explored social themes, which were emblematic of his time such as exploitation, consumerism, social discrimination, drug abuse, and the HIV/AIDS crisis. Alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf, and Jenny Holzer, Haring is regarded as a leading figure in the New York East Village Art scene in the 1970s and ’80s.
