Ground Level

Early in their careers Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat began to apply their distinct visual language to a range of unusual supports, many of which challenge the convention that artworks should be stretched to fit a frame.

NGV Curatorial Project Officer Meg Slater reflects on a selection of these important works in a section of the exhibition dedicated to the signature motifs and symbols adopted by each artist.
