  • Executed a year before his death in 1990, Keith Haring’s Pyramid features the artist’s iconic dancing characters gyrating with abandon on a shining three-dimensional surface. Following his AIDS diagnosis in 1988, Haring concerned himself with the longevity of art and what his practice would leave behind. He returned to pyramids consistently, as their iconography became a touchstone of his lifelong fascination with hieroglyphics and a meditation on the enduring qualities of art. While advocating for AIDS awareness and continuing to make street art around the United States, Haring produced many iterations of the present work; ranging from flat pyramid cutouts to the fully three-dimensional variation seen here, they are unified by their texture and quintessential patterning. Marrying abstraction, figuration, and political advocacy, Pyramid is an enduring artifact of Haring’s practice and the staying power of his legacy, imbuing it with a profound sense of artistic urgency.

    "All of the things that you make are a kind of quest for immortality. Because you’re making these things that you know have a different kind of life. They don’t depend on breathing, so they’ll last longer than any of us will. Which is sort of an interesting idea, that it’s sort of extending your life to some degree." —Keith Haring

      凱斯.哈林

      American • 1958 - 1990

      Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, Keith Haring moved to New York City in 1978 at the age of 20 to study at the School of Visual Arts. By the early 1980s, Haring rose to prominence for his graffiti drawings made in the New York subways and streets. Alongside his friends Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf, who he met at the SVA, Haring became a leading figure of the East Village art scene through the 1970s and 1980s.

      Best known for his cartoon-like imagery developed through bold lines and vibrant colors, Haring refined a visual language of symbols that simplified forms to their most essential elements. Exploring the themes of birth and death, sex and war, social inequality, and love, his art bridged the high and low, erasing the distinctions between rarefied art, political activism, and popular culture. Despite his tragically brief career, Haring created a universal visual language embraced throughout the world, and his works are housed in many major collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, Ludwig Museum, Cologne, and Nakamura Keith Haring Collection in Hokuto, Japan.
