When Kenny Scharf arrived in NYC in the early 1980s, he quickly met and befriended Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The trio would change the way we think about art, the world, and ourselves.

While Basquiat and Haring both died tragically young, Scharf lived through cataclysmic shifts in New York City and the art world. Despite setbacks along the way, Scharf continues to follow his particular high-tone, technicolor artistic vision while growing public and critical appreciation for his earlier work has cemented his place as a pop art icon.

KENNY SCHARF: WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE was made over 11 years and features interviews and rare archival footage with Scharf, Basquiat, Haring, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Dennis Hopper, Yoko Ono, Kaws, Marilyn Minter, and Jeffrey Deitch.
