Keith Haring: 1978–1982 @ Brooklyn Museum

NB-3 October 14, 1978 (age 20)
Keith Haring: 1978-1982, now on view at the Brooklyn Museum, is the first large-scale exhibition to focus on the artist’s early years. The span begins with works from 1978—the year Haring moved to New York, where he studied at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) and fell into the thriving alternative art community, befriending the likes of Kenny Scharf, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Andy Warhol—and it includes everything from rarely seen personal journals and notebooks to party photos and experimental videos.
