Keith Haring's motto “art is for everybody” has been read, photographed and shared by thousands during recent months. Back in the 1980s, Haring’s idealism in believing art should reach as many people as possible was an inspiration for his drawing and painting. Today, his retrospective sets a new record as BOZAR's most visited exhibition ever! Since it opened on 6 December, more than 180,000 people have seen it. The top three is now completed by Michaël Borremans (144,000 visitors) and Frida Kahlo (118,000 visitors).

Even in this time of corona when numbers had to be limited, the visitor figures were anything but disappointing. Haring's message to society of hope and solidarity also resounds now more than ever. For many young people, this exhibition was the moment to discover the work of this American artist and activist of the 1980s. High time indeed for such a (re)discovery.

Thank you 180,000 times!
