Woodward Gallery is delighted to offer a time capsule of Artist Keith Haring (1958 -1990) from the lens of rare, hand signed, 1980s posters announcing his participation and love for popular culture. Each poster in this exhibition was published in Keith Haring: Posters edited by Jurgen Doring & Claus Von Der Osten, published by Prestel.
This selection stands as preserved moments in the history of Keith Haring’s earliest solo exhibitions, AIDS activism and love for community. His images were intended to be available to all. Haring said that he wanted to take art, “off the pedestal. I’m giving it back to the people, for serious collectors and “for those who respond with complete honesty from deep down inside their hearts or their souls.”
Haring was energized to form an inclusive bond with those who saw his work. Woodward Gallery provides this special opportunity for those who always wanted to own a specific moment of the artist’s legacy.
