It may seem unusual to uphold a book of penis drawings as a significant art-historical moment, but Manhatten Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks creates an unignorable link between Haring's early work and his homosexuality. The drawings are lightheartedly homosexual in a way not possible since the discovery of "gay-related immune deficiency" (GRID) in 1982. In light of the forceful politics of Haring's later work, his penis drawings are, in a sense, the least complicated of his phallocentric art. They have no social message to impart, no silent president to shock into action. Keith Haring just really liked penises.--John Sherman "Hyperallergic "
The Twin Towers become twin penises. There are penises drawn in front of Tiffany's, in front of the Museum of Modern Art, while 'waiting for a yam.' There are minimalist penises, composed of as few lines as possible. There are also Gucci penises, alphabet penises, flying torpedo penises, optical illusion penises, deconstructed penises, 'actual size' tracings of penises, and clusters of penises on the subway at rush hour.--Dan Piepenbring "The Paris Review "
