Basquiat: Boom for Real

Domus - - NEWS -­

Lon­don’s Bar­bican pays homage to the ta­lent of Jean-Michel Basquiat with the ex­hi­bi­tion “Basquiat: Boom for Real” (21.9.2017–28.1.2018): an ex­plo­ration of the Amer­i­can artist’s re­la­tion­ship with mu­sic (be­bop and jazz), writ­ing, per­for­mance, and tele­vi­sion. In over 100 works paired with films, photos, mu­sic and other archival ma­te­ri­als, the ex­hi­bi­tion nar­rates the me­te­oric tra­jec­tory of one of the most im­por­tant self-taught artists on the New York un­der­ground art scene in the 1980s.
