Exhibition includes many works never seen before.
21 Feb-8 June. Milan’s royal palace hosts an exhibition of over 100 works by the American artist and social activist Keith Haring.
The exhibition aims to explore the sources of the inspiration which Haring drew from contemporary and classical art, the Renaissance and archaeology.
Arguably best known for the graffiti-like drawings of his early period, Haring later turned to a wide range of references, many of which will be juxtaposed in the exhibition with his own interpretation.
Before his premature death at 31 in 1990 from AIDS, Haring became also widely known for his social activism, concentrated on drugs, racism, nuclear armament, AIDS and discrimination.
