Arlington Museum of Art presents Keith Haring: "Against All Odds"
Arlington Museum of Art will present Keith Haring: "Against All Odds.” Together, more than 50 original works serve to deconstruct the traditional view of Haring as an artist. Beyond his well-known graphic iconography, the exhibition also explores his use of mark-making as a metaphor and his desire to address weighty subjects such as consumerism, poverty, religious dogma, violence, racism, and AIDS.
In 1988, Haring was diagnosed with AIDS, and in the remaining two years of his life, he established the Keith Haring Foundation which provides funding and imagery to AIDS awareness programs and organizations that work with children.
The Haring exhibit is a continuation of AMA’s commitment to bringing renowned artists to North Central Texas, including works by Vivian Maier, Ansel Adams, Toulouse Lautrec, Rembrandt, Pablo Picasso, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Milton Greene.
