Organized by the Columbus Museum of Art in honour of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the exhibition explored themes such as queer history, body politics, and AIDS activism through the art of Robert Mapplethorpe, Nan Goldin, David Wojnarowicz, and Judy Chicago among others.
About the Artist:
Keith Haring (May 4, 1958 - February 16, 1990) was an artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s. Haring achieved his first public attention with chalk drawings in the subways of New York. His bold lines, vivid colours, and active figures carry strong messages of life and unity. Between 1980 and 1989, Haring achieved international recognition and participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions. Haring was committed to his desire to make his artwork available to as wide an audience as possible, and received strong support for his project from friends, fans and mentors including Andy Warhol.
