Keith Haring (American 1958–90) and Jean-Michel Basquiat (American 1960–88) changed the art world of the 1980s through their idiosyncratic imagery, radical ideas and complex socio-political commentary, creating an indelible legacy that continues to influence contemporary visual and popular culture today. Each artist is acclaimed for his distinctive visual language, employing signs, symbols and words to convey strong social and political messages in unconventional ways.

The exhibition surveys each artist’s tragically short, yet prolific career through more than 200 artworks, including works created in public spaces, painting, sculpture, objects, works on paper, photographs and more. Crossing Lines provides local and international audiences with a comprehensive insight into these influential artists’ careers.

Beginning with examples of both artist’s work from the streets and subway stations of New York City, the exhibition presents early collaborations and works from each artist’s breakthrough exhibitions alongside many of their most acclaimed artworks, including paintings featuring Basquiat’s crown and head motifs and Haring’s iconic ‘radiant baby’ and dancing figures. Examining symbols, iconography and their incomparable styles, the exhibition also provides a broader appreciation of the creative social circles in which they moved along with other iconic figures including Andy Warhol, Madonna and Grace Jones.

Crossing Lines has been curated for the NGV by Dr Dieter Buchhart, art historian and curator of recent monographic exhibitions on both Jean-Michel Basquiat (Fondation Louis Vuitton, Barbican Art Gallery) and Keith Haring (Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris).

An accompanying publication features an essay by the exhibition curator Dr Dieter Buchhart, as well as additional essays by Ricardo Montez, Myles Russell-Cook, Larry Warsh and Linda Yablonsky, along with a republication of Rene Ricard’s seminal 1981 text on the artists. Also included in this richly illustrated book are interviews with Jenny Holzer, George Condo, Diego Cortez and Patti Astor.

基思·哈林(美国人, 1958-90)和让-米歇尔·巴斯奎特(美国人, 1960-88)通过独特的意象、激进的思想和复杂的社会政治评论改变了20世纪80年代的艺术世界,创造了不可磨灭的艺术遗产,并继续影响着当今的视觉艺术和流行文化。两位艺术家都因其独特的视觉语言而备受赞誉,他们运用符号、象征和文字以非传统的方式传达了强烈的社会和政治信息。

本展览通过200多件艺术作品审视了两位艺术家短暂而多产的职业生涯,其中包括他们在公共空间创作的作品、绘画、雕塑、物品、纸上作品、照片等等。《相交线》能让国内外观众全面了解两位艺术家富有影响力的职业生涯。

展览从两位艺术家在纽约街道和地铁站里创作的作品开始,呈现了两位艺术家的早期合作和具有突破意义的展览作品,以及许多两位艺术家最为著名的艺术作品,这些作品中有巴斯奎特标志性的皇冠和头像,以及哈林标志性的“发光婴儿”和跳舞形象。展览审视了符号、肖像学和两位艺术家无与伦比的风格,也让人们能更深入地了解两位艺术家与安迪·沃霍尔、麦当娜和格蕾丝·琼斯等标志性人物共同活跃的创意界社交圈。

《相交线》是由迪特尔·布赫特博士为NGV策划的,他是艺术历史学家,也是近期让-米歇尔·巴斯奎特(路易·威登基金会,巴比肯艺术画廊)和基思·哈林(巴黎现代艺术博物馆)专题展览的策展人。

与展览配套的出版物包括了策展人迪特尔·布赫特博士的一篇文章,以及里卡多·蒙特斯、迈尔斯·拉塞尔-库克、拉里·沃什和琳达·亚布隆斯基等人的文章,此外还有勒内·里卡尔1981年关于两位艺术家的重要作品的再版。这本书插图丰富多样,并包括了对珍妮·霍尔泽、乔治·康多、迭戈·科尔特斯和帕蒂·阿斯特的采访。
