Keith Haring’s Eclectic Journal Entries Go Online

Tomor­row marks the open­ing of Kei­th Har­ing: 1978–1982, the first “large-scale exhi­bi­tion to explore the ear­ly career of one of the best-known Amer­i­can artists of the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry.” The exhi­bi­tion, appear­ing at The Brook­lyn Muse­um until July 8, traces the devel­op­ment of Haring’s visu­al vocab­u­lary by show­cas­ing “155 works on paper, numer­ous exper­i­men­tal videos, and over 150 archival objects, includ­ing rarely seen sketch­books, jour­nals, exhi­bi­tion fly­ers, posters, sub­way draw­ings, and doc­u­men­tary pho­tographs.” And, of course, the exhi­bi­tion is accom­pa­nied by a Tum­blr that will host online pages tak­en from Har­ing’s per­son­al jour­nals. The Tum­blr will post one new entry per day (like the one above), through­out the dura­tion of the exhi­bi­tion. You can keep tabs on the entries right here. H/T Metafil­ter
