Keith Haring. The Recovery of an Emblematic Mural

Category
Other / Other

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the creation of the graffiti, the Raval Cultural and MACBA have recovered Haring's work on a wall connecting Carrer Ferladina with Plaça de Joan Corominas. The Museum’s Conservation and Restoration Department has made a thorough job of reconstructing the original, using tracings, colour samples and other surviving documentation, collected shortly before the original building on which it was painted was demolished in 1992.

The members of the MACBA conservation and restoration team that undertook the reproduction, explain the details of the installation of the mural and the stencil technique that was used, which that has existed since ancient times.
