    Annie Leibovitz Keith Haring 1987

    Annie Leibovitz John and Yoko Rolling Stone Cover 1981

    Annie Leibovitz Jeff Koons 1991

    Annie Leibovitz Mark Morris 1990

    While I haven’t been too interested in her work (save for some landscapes and music photography) her early treatment of the male nude is really profound. She was able to switch easily between the essence of a man’s true self and the sensuality that is so difficult to capture when dealing with the subject.

    The Keith Haring Foundation scanned the journals featured in Keith Haring: 1978–1982 and will post a page a day for the duration of the show. The exhibition, on view at the Brooklyn Museum from March 16 through July 8, 2012, is the first large-scale presentation to explore the early works of one of the best-known American artists of the twentieth century.

    Keith Haring installation at Tate Modern

Pop Life: Art in a Material World proposes a re-reading of one of the major legacies of Pop Art. The exhibition takes Andy Warhol’s notorious provocation that ‘good business is the best art’ as a starting point in reconsidering the legacy of Pop Art and the influence of the movement’s chief protagonist. Pop Life: Art in a Material World looks ahead to the various ways that artists since the 1980s have engaged with mass media and cultivated artistic personas creating their own signature ‘brands’. Among the artists represented are Tracey Emin, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince.

If you happen to be in London* it opens today.  I would take a gander if I were in the neighborhood.  But that’s just me.

*Lucky bastard.

    for the first time ever in the united states, keith haring’s the ten commandments will be on display, gracing new york with its presence. the twenty-five foot high paintings will be shown in the cathedral-like space of deitch studios in long island city from november 8th until december 21st.


The Ten Commandments, one of Keith Haring’s most powerful series of paintings, will be presented at Deitch Studios, Long Island City, from November 8 – December 21, 2008. The works portray the Ten Commandments from Haring’s point of view, combining a traditional Biblical interpretation with the artist’s liberating spirit and apocalyptic vision. The Ten Commandments were painted for Haring’s first solo museum show, a 1985 exhibition at the CAPC, Bordeaux, a reconverted wool warehouse with a span of twenty-five foot high archways supporting the roof. Thinking about how to best use the space, known as “the nave,” Haring had the inspiration to order ten tablet shaped canvases to fit within the arches. While on the dance floor at the Paradise Garage the day before leaving for Bordeaux, he had a vision to paint The Ten Commandments.

    Keith Haring Boxers 1988
I don’t put enough of his stuff on my blog.  As we know, I am usually not into political or socially charged art, but for some reason I can always get behind what is going on in Haring’s pieces.  I know it’s not just because I believe in the things that he believes in (which I do), because loads of other artists have done pieces focused on issues that I feel very strongly about.  It probably has to do something with his flawless and powerful simplicity.  Everything, the colors, the figures, the composition: simple but powerful.
