Crossing Line: Keith Haring | Jean-Michel Basquiat

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.

Keith Haring
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.

Jean-Michel Basquiat
An icon of New York in the 1980s, Jean-Michel Basquiat became renowned during his short career for works inspired by his early street art and a distinctive iconography often connected to art history. His paintings, drawings, and prints drew on a diverse range of sources, from African, Aztec, and Greek cultures to Americana in the form of jazz, baseball, and social and political events.
