XIV th meeting - Keith Haring between Graffiti and street art
Lecture by Matteo Innocenti
Admission: € 5 (full price) / € 4 (for members) / Ing. Lib. for students and unemployed of all levels (documented)

Pecci School is a program of lectures by multidisciplinary breath: over forty meetings devoted to the most important figures of the twentieth century and contemporary, from history to art, from music to movies through the theater.
A simple and concise tool for those who aspire to better structure its knowledge, for those who want to go over the main events of the twentieth century, for those who intend to acquire a concept map to be explored later. Every week - on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 21 hours to 23 hours - recognized experts introduce the public to the works of the protagonists of the twentieth century and contemporary, with the help of pictures, music and videos.
By illegal interventions in the metro stations to international success. Keith Haring, the "radiant child" of the New York art scene during the 80's, with simple and communicative designs has been able to relate opposing elements: the star system and the general public, lightheartedness and social activism, the desire of life and awareness of the disease. The parable of an artist who becomes icon despite the untimely death. Against the backdrop of hip hop culture, graffiti and street art.
