This event has ended.

A new installation in the Henry Luce III Center for the Study of American Culture will feature everyday items transformed by famed New York artist Keith Haring. Keith Haring All-Over explores the artist’s use of unconventional surfaces: clothing, furniture and skin; as well as photographs and videos that document his process and passion for making ordinary objects into extraordinary works of art.

Known for his chalk drawings on subway station walls and public murals, Keith Haring left his mark on nearly anything he could find—even the bodies of other artists—all painted with detail and finesse. Highlights of the installation include photos and videos of Haring’s collaborations with Bill T. Jones, Grace Jones, and Madonna that feature painted clothing or backdrops, including a jacket worn by Madonna when she performed at Haring’s first “Party of Life” birthday celebration in 1984.
All objects on view in the rotating display are on loan from the Keith Haring Foundation Archive. The Keith Haring Foundation donated the ceiling of the original Pop Shop to the New-York Historical Society, where the work, with its bold and lively design, now hovers above the admissions area.
