Of utmost importance to Haring during the time of this work's creation was the concept of the technological revolution, which precipitated conflicting feelings of awe-struck beguilement and trepidation, and is most immediately referenced through Haring’s attentiveness to the thunderous growth of 1980s computer and television culture and the consequential implications of mass media in a rapidly globalised society. Indeed, the dancers in Untitled hold a television set above their heads like a trophy or deity, from which emanates an image of Haring’s iconic radiant baby – a symbol for the youthful innocence, purity, goodness, and potential of his generation. An iconic work from Haring’s oeuvre, Untitled comes from the Collection of Alessandro Grassi, Milan, and has been exhibited in shows in both Venice and Rovereto. Enthralling and vivacious, the work beautifully embodies the dizzying energy and sense of possibility that permeated the New York cultural scene during the 1980s.
