New York University is pleased to invite you to "Keith Haring: Languages," a Symposium and Exhibition at NYU's Fales Library.
Thursday, December 12, 3:00 PM to 6:30 PM
Bobst Library, 3rd floor, inside Fales Library
70 Washington Square South
Curated by Andrew Blackley, the exhibition focuses on early texts, archival objects, and rarely-screened video artworks made by Keith Haring and runs through February 28, 2014.
Drawn from the materials maintained by the Keith Haring Foundation, the participants -- curators, art historians, filmmakers, critics and scholars -- were asked to look at Haring not simply as a visual artist, but as a figure engaged with, among other things, semiotics, mathematics, and language—both verbal and visual.
The exhibition will explore the textual content developed behind these video artworks and their transitional use in Haring's early performances and installations. The textual artworks within the exhibition hold unique positions as they individually occupy multiple categorical qualifiers - drawings, verses, plans, poems and exercises. The exhibition draws from and showcases selected materials from Haring’s archive as modular; together composing a matrix of exchangeable but specific data. Rather than highlighting individual documents as representative, the exhibition is organized to allow for each of the 130+ items to interact within the syntax of matrices. Each model is allowed to exist and function both autonomously and as a key component of a set.
