The Tribeca Film Festival will be showing “The Universe Of Keith Haring”, a documentary about one of the most influential artist of the last century.
“The creator of some of the most popular, enduring images of late 20th-century art, Keith Haring was also an iconic figure of the downtown New York scene in the ’80s. Christina Clausen’s documentary offers an affectionate, deeply personal glimpse into Haring’s life, from his early years growing up in a small, conservative Pennsylvania town to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Madonna, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Andy Warhol.
Haring’s family and childhood friends offer anecdotes about the artist’s early years, when he basked in ’60s pop culture and developed a penchant for drawing, but it is the recollections of the ’70’s and ’80s New York art scene that form that heart and soul of this documentary.”
