About

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 graffitipop 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.
