Event description
Keith Haring’s New York Nightlife – discussion and DJ sets with DAVE HASLAM

About this Event

Artist Keith Haring is featuring in a huge exhibition at Tate Liverpool; in collaboration with the Tate. the label Soul Jazz Records have released a beautifully packaged compilation album, The World of Keith Haring, featuring music that soundtracked Haring’s New York from the late 1970s and through the 1980s; and Dave Haslam’s new book is ‘We the Youth’ explores the influence of New York’s nightlife on the artist’s life and work.

To celebrate this renewed interest in Haring’s work and mark this activity, Dave Haslam will introduce his new book and lead a discussion on Keith Haring’s New York Nightlife with Soul Jazz Records head honcho Stuart Baker.

In addition, we’ll have two special guest panellists, including Keith Harings’s close friend Samantha McEwen (she was a student with Keith, and then shared an apartment with him for two years), and Tim Lawrence, author of the seminal Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor, 1980-1983.

The afterparty will feature Dave Haslam and Tim Lawrence playing the best of the Mudd Club, Paradise Garage, and Danceteria playlists, with an emphasis, of course, on music Keith expressed particular love for.

A merchandise table will be selling copies of the Soul Jazz album plus related books, including Dave Haslam’s ‘We the Youth’.

All profits from the event will go to the Keith Haring Foundation which protects his legacy and supports not-for-profit organizations that assist enhancing life opportunities for children, and organizations involved in education, prevention, and care related to AIDS.
