On May 4th, Gladstone Gallery will open a rare exhibition of never before seen works by Keith Haring. Focusing on the early evolution of Haring’s raw visual language, the exhibition is anchored by three previously unseen live paintings on paper created during a series of Bill T. Jones performances hosted at The Kitchen in 1982. The exhibition will also present a selection of the NY legend’s early sketchbook drawings, along with a series of lithographs commissioned by gallery matriarch Barbara Gladstone in 1982, which would […]

Our friends over at the Sciolist recently visited the MoMA in New York. It looks like now might be a good time to stop by if you are in town as there are some iconic works from artist like Vincent van Gogh, Monet, Haring, Ruscha, and many more. Take a look at some more of the photos after the jump…
As stated in our focus on the Los Angeles portion of the Art in the Streets exhibition, the MOCA gave us a look at both the beginning of the movement and its roots. LA is the home of the museum and also the west coast street movement, but let’s not forget that Jeffery Deitch made his name in the streets of New York prior to his ascension to director of the museum. Mr.Deitch also made sure to carry the legends of the easts across the […]
Three weeks ago, AM attended the London preview for the pop-up exhibition Richard Hambleton New York. Upon entering the venue, it wasn’t immediately clear whether we’d arrived at an art show or a fashion show. The heaving crowd and large amount of perfume in the air may have disoriented us slightly; we were left hesitating between taking pictures of the art on the walls and the clothes people were wearing. What’s certain is that the event was glamourous, and it’s been a long time since […]
Last Thursday, AM was in London’s Soho district to attend the opening of Marks & Stencils: the Pictures On Walls Christmas season pop-up gallery exhibition, which in previous years has gone by the name of Santa’s Ghetto. There was a great atmosphere at the event. No doubt this was partly assisted by the deceptively strong cocktails being served, which led us to yet again repeat our mistake of equating “sweet drink” with “harmless drink”. But that’s another story. The show harbours a selection of prints […]
The piece above is titled “One Day This Kid…” by David Wojnarowicz. In light of recent bullying inflicted upon GLBTQ youth – making it a national issue – this work of art is important and powerful. Share it by downloading the image to print out here. Left without a home since the closing of Deitch Projects, Keith Haring estate joins Gladstone Gallery. Scott Campbell burns his own sold out show in dispute with gallery. Why he did it. Yvonne Force Villareal house includes artwork by […]
Recently, AM attended the VIP preview of Tachen’s latest art book: Trespass: A History of Uncommissioned Urban Art. Written by Carlo McCormick, curated by our friends Marc & Sara Schiller at the Wooster Collective, and edited by Ethel Seno, this behemoth houses tons of pictures documenting graffiti and other forms of unsanctioned art all around the globe. It features works from 150 artists including AM favorites such as Keith Haring, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Os Gemeos, Faile, Ron English and Blu. From the moments the doors opened, there was […]
Remember the Koons dog piece Banksy put up in April as part of the LA premiere of his documentary? Well, you knew it would only be a matter of time before he took on another famous canine – the Haring dog! Take another look at this piece as well as a couple other new pieces in London, a take on The Clash’s London Calling cover and a robot box head piece after the jump… Guess the Simpsons project didn’t take up all his time.
As we mentioned in our preview, Black Rat Projects opened their doors a while back to a pretty impressive collection of the street scene a couple weeks ago. Just like the “Thousands” show last year, this exhibition gave fans a chance to see all their favorite street artists (including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey (featured), Swoon (interviewed), Banksy, Barry Mcgee, Faile (featured) and Os Gemeos) at the same time under one roof. Other than museum shows, this is probably the only way you can […]
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the death of Keith Haring, the Tony Shafrazi Gallery recently opened a gallery-wide tribute to the graffiti legend and 80s New York art superstar. The show contains iconic paintings, drawings and sculptures with Haring’s bold lines and energetic characters. See all the images from the show, after the jump.
