Keith Haring

Tate Liverpool, Liverpool

Until 10 November 2019

In Keith Haring’s own words, “Art should be something that liberates your soul”. A key figure in the legendary 1980s New York art scene, having worked with artists such as Warhol and Basquiat, Haring’s iconic vocabulary of cartoonish motifs – barking dogs, crawling babies and flying saucers – was inspired by pop art, graffiti and club culture. Haring’s primary motive, however, was political – to fight homophobia, campaign for nuclear disarmament and support the anti-apartheid movement, liberating people’s minds and souls from fear and ignorance. This is the first exhibition of his work in the UK since his early death, at 31, in 1990.
