An unmistakable style that has come to define an era

Join us for the first, major UK exhibition of artist and activist Keith Haring (1958–1990). Visitors can enjoy more than 85 artworks including large, vibrant paintings, drawings and sculptures.

A part of the legendary New York art scene of 1980s, Haring was a champion of his generation’s counterculture. He was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Haring worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were interested in creating art for the many. They used new media and public spaces, not galleries to do so.

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.
