BOZAR presents a major retrospective of the legendary American artist, Keith Haring. As a friend and artistic companion to Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring was a unique figure in 1980s New York. He played a key role in counterculture by creating an instantly recognisable style. Haring is primarily known for his iconic motifs: barking dogs, crawling babies and flying saucers. He strived to make art “public” by displaying it in his Pop Shop, the media or in subway stations and collective urban spaces. He drew inspiration from abstract expressionism, pop art, Japanese calligraphy and the work of New York graffiti artists. His singular, seemingly spontaneous style embodied the energy of his time, from space travel to hip-hop and video games. His powerful work is still relevant today.
