UT is celebrating the National Gallery of Victoria's world premiere exhibition with this new collection featuring the works of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Exclusive to Melbourne at the NGV, Crossing Lines reveals, for the first time, the many intersections between the lives, practices and ideas of these two influential artists. The exhibition will be on display at the NGV in Melbourne from 1 December 2019 to 13 April 2020.
A key figure in New York's East Village scene in the late 1970s and 80s, American artist Keith Haring's artwork populated not only art galleries, but also the city's subways, streets, and sidewalks. His work often combined an iconographic vocabulary, including hearts, flying saucers, winged figures, and a crawling “radiant baby,” with abstract marks and patterning.
