Keith Haring Fiorucci walls of downtown New York


The New York City Center is celebrating the return of in-person performances with its annual Fall for Dance Festival. In its 18th year, the ten-day event features five programs that showcase three different groups of artists and businesses that aim to make cultural performances as affordable as going to the movies.

Additionally, downtown will unveil a rarely seen panel artwork by Keith Haring and Angel Ortiz (LA II), titled Fiorucci walls. The in situ installation was carried out on October 9, 1983 at the Fiorucci outpost in Milan thanks to a special order from Elio Fiorucci himself. Initially, the legendary designer had the installation dismantled in 1984, where he kept it until its restoration in 1991. The ultra-rare work of art is currently on loan from the MACo Museum in Thailand and will be located at Shuman from downtown. Salon.

Haring began working with LA II in the early 1980s, praising his work “as close as the Western world came to a stylized form of writing similar to Eastern calligraphy,” the artist wrote in a journal entry. Fiorucci walls will be open to the public on four different dates – October 29 and 30, as well as November 5 and 6 – from noon to 6 p.m. EST.

In case you missed it, the Noguchi Museum has released a sculptural incense holder.
