The “visual language” of iconic artist Keith Haring is expected to enter the active conversations about political and societal subjects among many of the diverse populations in North Central Texas when the Arlington Museum of Art opens the “Keith Haring: Against All Odds” June 21. The show will continue through Sept. 15, 2019. 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.
Advance tickets may be purchased through the museum’s website, arlingtonmuseum.org. Sponsorship opportunities for the exhibition are still available. Inquiries should be directed to 817-275-4600 or [email protected]
