The Universe of Keith Haring

Event Details

Jump into the world of one of Pop Art's most influential artists with this enthralling documentary.

The Universe of Keith Haring offers an affectionate and deeply personal glimpse into Haring's life, from his early years growing up in a small Pennsylvania town to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol, to his AIDS-related death at 31.

The creator of some of the most popular and enduring images of late 20th-century art, Keith Haring was also an iconic figure of the downtown New York scene in the '80s. His extensive body of work—ranging from paintings to sculpture to subway murals—can still be seen worldwide, and his influence on the '80s New York art community remains an important piece of history.
