Keith L. Davis (December 10, 1954 – July 27, 1987) was a graphic designer who worked at the magazine Artforum. He was deeply involved with the East Village gallery scene in the early 1980s, collecting artists' work and inviting them use the equipment and supplies in his home and at Artforum. He and David Wojnarowicz were close friends, and they traveled together. An interview he taped with Wojnarowicz, as well as Davis's will, can be found in the Wojnarowicz Papers. He died of complications related to AIDS in 1987 and is buried at Valley View Memorial Park (Newberg, OR 97132).
