Keith Haring


(No Publisher) (og. title: KEITH HARING: NEW DRAWINGS / CLUB 57 Transparent Flyer c. 1981)

Transparency; 3 x 4 inches, 7.6 x 10.2 cm: Original transparency / announcement card for Keith Haring's one night show of new drawings at Club 57. Starting in 1980, Haring began organizing events and exhibitions at Club 57, a nightclub and artists space in the basement of a Polish church on St. Mark s Place. It was around this time that Haring began to develop his most recognized symbol, the Radiant Baby, featured here five times over, in its earliest stages. This exceedingly scarce variant of the show's invitation was designed and executed by Haring. Nearly fine condition with the inked text showing faint marking. A strikingly presentable and unique piece of early Haring ephemera.
