a carefully curated calendar & cumulative catalog of new york city's most interesting art exhibitions and events. hand picked by Arthur Seen & Team

Today marked the 22nd anniversary of Keith Haring’s passing.
"The monumental 1982 Keith Haring drawing "Untitled" is not often on view, so its inclusion in the Museum’s current installation "Contemporary Galleries: 1980–Now" seems like an ideal opportunity to think about how this artist’s iconic visual language fits into the larger story of 20th-century art…The work is pinned across three walls on MoMA’s 2nd floor in a truly immersive presentation. Shown alongside work by Haring’s contemporaries such as Jeff Koons, Martin Wong, and artist-run collectives like ABC No Rio and COLAB, the drawing can be appreciated in its art-historical and social contexts. Important to understanding any art, these frameworks are especially crucial for Haring, whose aesthetics turned increasingly toward activism after he was diagnosed with AIDS in 1988.” - Samantha Friedman, MoMA
“Contemporary Galleries: 1980–Now" is an ongoing exhibition in the 2nd floor galleries at MoMA.
