From pulsating New York City in the 1980s to ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ in 1888 and modernist Japan in the 1920s – this issue of NGV Magazine revives some of the most poignant moments in our history, revealing the enormous impact creative endeavours and art has on the social fabric of our cities. We begin with the major exhibition Keith Haring | Jean-Michel Basquiat: Crossing Lines and celebrate the relationship between music and iconography in their work, while also reflecting on Keith Haring’s unforgettable time in Melbourne in 1984. Get to know artist Ivan Durrant, once regarded as the troublemaker of the Australian art world, follow the twists, turns and cracks of ceramicist James Lemon’s experimental furniture, take a stroll down the streets of Tokyo with the moga, modern, girls of 1920s Japan and recall the history of Melbourne’s newspaper boys of 1888 through Florence Fuller’s The paper boy – all this and more awaits you.
