Keith Haring X The Merchant
Keith Haring: A Retrospective, The Music Of His Era
Join us for a night celebrating the music that defined an era of 80s counterculture. Celebrating the end of the first, major UK exhibition of artist and activist Keith Haring (19581990) at The Tate Liverpool.
A part of the legendary New York art scene of 1980s, Haring was a champion of his generation. He was inspired by graffiti, pop art and underground club culture. Haring worked with like-minded artists such as Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat. All were interested in creating art for the many.
Haring was also heavily involved in club culture, curating a revolving gallery for the fourth floor of the chic downtown nightclub and live music venue The Mudd Club are testament to Keiths links to the culture of the dance.
Expect music from Deee - Lite to David Bowie, Marshall Jefferson to Madonna and hits from NYC clubs The Mudd Club, The Paradise Garage and The Palladium
