Keith Haring’s Apocalypse Series

RedLine Milwaukee features Keith Haring’s Apocalypse series in
newest exhibit, opening Gallery Night April 25, 2014 6-9pm


RedLine Milwaukee is pleased to announce its newest exhibition The Apocalypse Series. The 1988 series by the late American artist Keith Haring is comprised of ten silkscreen prints created in collaboration with writer William S. Burroughs.

Keith Haring first gained recognition in the early 1980s for his quickly rendered chalk drawings
on empty advertisement panels in the subways of New York City, inserting his distinctive style
into public pathways in rapid rhythmic lines. Haring went on to become an internationally
renowned artist, creating hundreds of public works and being featured in over 100 exhibitions.
In this body of work, Haring employs his signature style of bold lines, expressive color, and
simple figures to create a visual representation of his contemplation of mortality.
The Apocalypse Series provokes and presents viewers with an invitation to reflect on birth, life,
and death.

The Apocalypse Series is on loan from Quad/Graphics and is on view at RedLine Miwaukee
through July 19, 2014. This exhibition is made possible by the Joseph R. Pabst Fund of
the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, and is co-sponsored by the Milwaukee LGBT
Community Center.

Opening: Friday, April 25, 2014 6-9pm

Exhibition runs April 25–July 19 2014

Gallery Hours: Thursday 10am–7pm, Friday & Saturday 10am–3pm
