REVOLUTIONS - The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey Opening Reception: Sat., March 12, 2011; 8-11pm  Exhibition Dates: March 12 - April 23, 2011 C2 Gallery Obey Giant Art x Subliminal Projects x Robert Berman  Gallery are proud to present REVOLUTIONS, a project featuring the Album  Cover Art of Shepard Fairey. This exhibition will be on view from March  12th thru April 23rd at Robert Berman’s C2 Gallery, and will consist of  over 80 pieces of Punk, Rock, New Wave, Jazz, and Hip-Hop inspired  artwork based on the 12” record cover format. To mark this occasion, two  special Limited Edition Album Cover Print Box sets will be released for  the exhibition. Please join us for the opening celebration on Saturday,  March 12th 8-11pm. “Long before I knew about art galleries or even street  art, I was excited about album cover art, if only because it was the  visual counterpart to the music on the records. Album covers conjured a  euphoric association with the listening experience. Most of my earliest  home-made tee shirts were stencils based on punk album covers. I’ve had  some very moving encounters with art in my life, especially in the  street, but nothing can compare with the first time I heard the boots  marching and first chord of the Sex Pistols’ “Holidays in the Sun,” or  the air raid sirens leading into “too black, too strong” on Public  Enemy’s It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, or the opening  guitar scream of Black Flag’s “Rise Above”. That music makes my arm  hairs stand up. Music is visceral and accessible, but also has the  additional powerful layers of the lyrics with their content and  politics, the style and personalities of the musicians, and the politics  of their lifestyles. No matter how much I love art, or try to convince  myself of its relevance in society, the fact remains that music is a lot  cooler and way more able to reach people’s hearts and minds… but I’m a  populist and I look at this way: I may not play an instrument, but I’m  gonna rock it hard as nails anyway. REVOLUTIONS is a celebration of all  the great music and accompanying art that has inspired me over the  years.” - Shepard

Keith Haring, né le 4 mai 1958 à Reading en Pennsylvanie et mort le 16 février 1990 (à 31 ans) à New York, est un artiste et un activiste américain des années 1980.
Dans sa jeunesse, Keith Haring écoute Aerosmith, les Beatles, et consomme drogues et alcool.À 18 ans, il entreprend des études de graphisme commercial à Pittsburgh puis continue à l’école des Arts visuels de New York. Il s’essaie à des disciplines telles que le collage, la peinture, les installations, la vidéo, etc., mais son mode d’expression privilégié demeure le dessin.À New York, et plus particulièrement dans l’East Village, il découvre la foisonnante culture alternative des années 1980 qui, hors des galeries et des musées, développe son expression sur de nouveaux territoires : rues, métros, entrepôts, etc.
Il rencontre des artistes de la vie underground new-yorkaise tels Kenny Scharf et Jean-Michel Basquiat, avec qui il devient ami, et organise ou participe à des expositions et des performances au Club 57, qui devient le lieu fétiche de l’élite avant-gardiste. C’est à cet endroit que le Bébé rayonnant, un des pictogrammes les plus connus de l’artiste, fut créé.Inspiré par le graffiti, tenant du Bad Painting, et soucieux de toucher un large public, Haring commence à dessiner à la craie blanche sur des panneaux publicitaires noirs du métro de New York. Il grave également des dalles de grès des trottoirs dans l’East Village (elles sont toujours visibles).
