In 1982, Keith Haring collaborated with the renowned dancer and choreographer, Bill T. Jones. Together, they created a performance piece titled Long Distance, in which Jones danced to the rhythms and sounds of Haring’s brushstrokes as he painted the backdrop of the performance. The success resulted in another collaboration in 1984, when Haring designed the set for Secret Pastures at the Brooklyn Academy of Musicchoreographed by Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, with music by Peter Gordon. The present work is a section of the tent in the center stage of this set, which was moved around and rotated during the performance. Secret Pastures explored the themes of race, sexuality, and the AIDS epidemic. Haring’s schematically outlined human figures and the use of simple lines bring to mind tribal artworks. In an interview in 1985, Haring explained his thoughts on Primitivism in his work: “With me it’s not so much looking at or trying to imitate as much as it is trying to embody the idea of 'primitivism' in my own approach to the work and my attitude towards drawing and towards the world” (Keith Haring in conversation with Sylvie Couderc, The Ten Commandments, An Interview, www.haring.com, December 1985).
