Keith Haring at Tony Shafrazi

It’s been kind of a ridiculous couple of years at Tony Shafrazi‘s sprawling West Chelsea compound, with a series of museum-caliber solo and group shows starting back in 2008 with that year’s L Mag Best Gallery Show-winner Who’s Afraid of Jasper Johns?, followed last year by early Andy Warhol, Dennis Hopper‘s incredible photography from the 60s onwards and most recently a tour-de-force survey of Californian outlaw painter Robert Williams.

Last month Tony Shafrazi Gallery opened its latest must-see solo retrospective, an exhibition marking twenty years since the death of Keith Haring. Titled simply 20th Anniversary, it offers an impressively comprehensive survey of the graffiti artist-turned-art star’s expansive body of work, which went from consisting mostly of posters and murals in the early 80s to spanning paintings, drawings, prints, collages, steel figures and totem-like sculptures. 20th Anniversary closes April 3.
