Keith Haring: 1978–1982 at the Brooklyn Museum is the first large-scale exhibition to explore his early career, according to a museum statement. It opens March 16 and runs through July 8. The exhibition includes 155 works on paper, numerous experimental videos and more than 150 archival objects, including rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition fliers, posters, subway drawings and documentary photographs. Before his death from AIDS-related complications at the age of 31, Haring established the Keith Haring Foundation. It provides funding and imagery to HIV/AIDS organizations and children’s programs.
