Keith Haring Posters

The Sorsapuisto Hall will host the poster art of Keith Haring (1958-1990), a famous American artist at summer 2021.

Keith Haring was an American street artist who died in 1990 and whose style was inspired by hip hop culture as well as graffiti and pop art and progressed from drawings in the New York City subway to pieces known all over the world.

He is known for his large murals and posters with societal themes as well as his works that opposed South Africa’s apartheid policy and his works that raised AIDS awareness. In the 1980s, Haring also started to do more commercial work. His designs for Swatch wristwatches and Absolut Vodka advertising posters are still remembered, as is his collaboration with the rap group Run DMC on the marketing of the Adidas Superstar sneakers. The Pop Shop art shop he founded continues to have a presence online.

In the summer of 2021, Tampere Hall’s Sorsapuisto Hall will feature  more than 100 Museum quality posters and it’s considered to be one of the largest and most comprehensive collections in the world. The exhibition is being curated by Julia Meer from the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Hamburg which has loaned out the pieces for the exhibition.
