Whitewall Magazine spoke with Pace Prints Chelsea director Rachel Gladfelter on her recent collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation to curate the current exhibition at Pace Prints. Marking the 25th anniversary of the foundation, the show benefits education, research and care initiatives he specified after being diagnosed with AIDS in 1988.
In the interview, Gladfelter discusses one of the highlights of the show saying, "In Dog (1986) Haring outlined his signature dog, and with a touch of horror vacui, populated [it] with images of television sets, babies, angels, devils, slavery and sex. He filled it with humanity. These compositions touch on activism, love, life, death, politics, and everything else that was happening in the world around him."
Keith Haring will be on view at Pace Prints, 521 W. 26th Street through December 24.
