Keith Haring: The Political Line will make its U.S. premiere at the de Young Museum in San Francisco this season. The exhibition is the first major Haring show on the West Coast in nearly two decades and will be on view November 8, 2014—February 16, 2015.
The Political Line will feature more than 170 works of art, including large-scale paintings on tarpaulins and canvases, sculptures, and a number of the artist’s subway drawings. The exhibition creates a narrative that explores Haring’s response to nuclear weapons, race, capitalism and environmental concerns.
Concurrent with the de Young exhibition, and in collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation, Pace Prints Chelsea will host Keith Haring on view from November 14—December 24, 2014.
