Preview: Keith Haring’s “The Political Line” at The Musée d’Art Moderne

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

This Friday, April 19, The Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris will unveil an extensive retrospective of iconic artist Keith Haring (1958-1990). While Haring’s work has left its mark on popular culture with its bold, linear aesthetic, the exhibition “The Political Line” shines a light on the political motives behind Haring’s art. Filled with frantic figures and subversive imagery, the works in this retrospective speak to Haring’s rejection of capitalism and his firm stance against racism and homophobia. The exhibition will be held concurrently at the Musée d’Art Moderne and at the art space CENTQUATRE, with over 250 pieces (including Haring’s famous large-scale works) on view. The exhibition is sponsored by fashion label Citizens of Humanity, who are organizing a special youth program to give underprivileged children access to the show. Take a look at our preview of “The Political Line” below and see the show April 19 – August 18 at the MAM in Paris.
