Two Ohio artists transform a Museum gallery into an immersive, colorful, sensory experience. Natalie Lanese and Andrea Myers are teaming up for this endeavor, each harnessing their dramatic use of color and scale to turn ordinary walls and floors into an unforgettable environment for visitors to enjoy. While Myers typically works in fabric and Lanese in paint, they’ll combine techniques and materials in this exhibition.
100 Years of Change offers a chance to take stock of where we have been and where we are now, as well as an opportunity to imagine where we might be in another hundred years.
Keith Haring’s career in art began with chalk graffiti in New York City subway stations and, during the 1980s, exploded into paintings, drawings, large-scale murals, fashion, and pop culture. The artist channeled his newfound popularity and his signature style of bold and energetic outlines into expressions of love and positivity. He also used his art to make political statements against environmental destruction, racism, homophobia, and more. Ranging from the artist’s best-known imagery to more personal and adventurous works, Keith Haring: Against All Odds will survey the height of his career, from the early 1980s until his death in 1990 at the age of thirty-one. The show will also include artwork by some of Haring’s friends and artistic peers, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and David Wojnarowicz.
