"Keith Haring: Apocalypse," a new exhibition at New York's Pace Prints showing the collaborations between pop artist Haring, Beat Generation writer William Burroughs, and English-born artist Brion Gysin is eerily relevant for 2018.

The two main works on display, Apocalypse and The Valley, were made in 1988 and 1989 respectively and feature Burroughs' freeform writing accompanied by Haring's illustrations.

Although made at the tail end of the 20th century, both works explore themes and issues we're still grappling with today — alienation, death, fear — through Burroughs at once chilling and absurd texts and Haring's reappropriation of commercial and religious iconography.

The exhibition also includes the book Fault Lines, a limited-edition collaboration by Gysin and Haring, and Gysin’s work Dream Machine, which was part of Haring's personal collection.

"Keith Haring: Apocalypse" is on show now until December 21. Browse images from the exhibition above and head to Pace Prints for more information.
