Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat changed the art world when they shot to fame in New York in the 1980s.

What was it about the art scene at this time that fostered their talent and creativity? How did the place, the people and the politics of 1980s New York influence their rise to fame, and what is their legacy 30 years on?

Exhibition curator Dr Dieter Buchhart and special guests consider the short but profound careers of both artists, the intersections between their life and their art, and the lasting impact they had on the art world.
