Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and New York in the 1980s – in pictures

While their art dealt with urgent political issues – capitalism, apartheid, Aids, the environment – Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat lived the social lives of rock stars, spending their days in New York with the likes of Grace Jones, Madonna, Andy Warhol, Rene Ricard and others. This series of vintage photographs, many of them taken by fellow artist Maripol, offers a peep behind the canvas into the radical and raucous lives of two of the most influential artists of 1980s

Keith Haring | Jean-Michel Basquiat: Crossing Lines is showing at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, from 1 December 2019 to 11 April 2020
