Haring’s Dancing Figures Explode with Energy

New York | 12 May

Infused with raw energy and compositional force, Keith Haring’s explosive Untitled dates from 1986, the height of the artist’s prolific, but tragically short-lived career. Haring’s carefully filled canvas is alive with his signature dancing figures; their bodies are chaotic and contorted, but never overlapping. Join David Galperin, head of the New York Contemporary Art Evening auctions, as he explores the complex joy and pain of Haring’s Untitled, a highlight of the upcoming New York auction on 12 May.
