Opening of the Show „KEITH HARING Icons - White Icons“ on 03.02.2012
GALERIE FLUEGEL-RONCAK, with a strong focus on Contemporary Art and Pop Art will held its Opening Reception for the new Show
„ KEITH HARING Icons-White Icons “
from 19:00 to 21:00 on Friday, February 3rd 2012.
The Exhibition runs through March 15th 2012.
We will show the two last print series "Icons" Keith Haring made in 1990.
Haring was born in Pensylvania in 1958 and was influenced by graffiti art. He died on February 16th in 1958 in New York due to AIDS related complications.
Besides Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein he was one of the main artists of the POP Art movement. His Iconic stick figures made him famous all over the world shortly.
The works in this exhibition show both Portfolios of Icons Suite from 1990. The coloured ones and opposed to them the complete white ones.
Booth have the outlines embossed, at the white ones this is the only change on the smooth paper which turns up the images.
The series are a kind of retrospective as they include all important and iconic symbols Haring used during his whole period: The radiant child, the barking Dog, the Angel...
The Radiant Baby is the tag of Keith Haring, pop/street artist of the 1980s. Haring said of the baby, "Babies represent the possibility of the future, the understanding of perfection, how perfect we could be. There is nothing negative about a baby, ever...The reason that the "baby" has become my logo or signature is that it is the purest and most positive experience of human existence."
Galerie Fluegel-Roncak is focused on POP ART and Contemporary Art and Photography. Changing Solo Shows at the Gallery Space in the Heart of Nuremberg expose different positions of our gallery program.
