Keith Haring Juan Dubose Area nightclub 1983: Rare historical & highly collectible early 1980s Keith Haring announcement celebrating the occasion of his then partner, Juan Dubose’s Birthday at “Area.” Off Set Lithograph on double-sided cover stock. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Very good overall vintage condition with only some minor signs of handling. Unsigned from an edition of unknown; few are known to have survived in nice condition. RARE. Literature: ‘Area: 1983-1987’ (Eric & Jennifer Goode). Exhibited: Area The Exhibition; The Hole Gallery NYC: November, 2013. Keith Haring & Juan Dubose: Dubose was Haring’s long-time boyfriend and lover, who ultimately died of AIDS in 1988. Haring and Dubose had a passionate on-and-off relationship for five years. In Haring’s own words, “It’s probably one of my major faults that I pursue physical love with such obsession. It was always the first and foremost aspect that I took care of. I always felt that intellectual stimulation and companionship could be supplied by other people…For me, the physical part was so overpowering that I just let it lead me around in this really obsessive way.” (John Gruen, Keith Haring: The Authorized Biography, New York 1991, p. 139) Area Nightclub (1983-1987) History: This much fabled New York nightclub Area opened its doors in September 1983 and virtually overnight became the nexus of one of the most vibrant downtown art and club scenes in New York. Every six weeks, they transformed the enormous space at 157 Hudson with a different art theme. Area was the place where A-listers such as Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente, Julian Schnabel, Madonna, JFK Jr. & many others went to see and be seen: A place where Basquiat often DJ'd, while Keith Haring and Andy Warhol produced several installations. Area's wildly creative invitations to the opening night of each new installation became the hottest tickets in town and instantly collectible art in and of themselves.
