Fans of streetwear are undoubtedly familiar with Keith Haring‘s work. The late artist was amongst the most prolific of his contemporaries and across T-shirts, sneakers, and even preserved walls in cities, Haring’s legacy of creation continues to live on. Perhaps an understated motif throughout Haring’s work though, was a strong political concern – one that strove to combat racism, homophobia, and other normalized injustices in our society. On this note, MAM Paris with the help of Citizens of Humanity held a retrospective exhibition featuring some of Haring’s more poignant work: a 250-piece collection of paintings, sculptures and drawings that captured the feeling of urban discomfort. This important exhibition opened last week and runs through August.
