BASQUIAT: BOOM FOR REAL

Malaysia Tatler - - CONCIERGE -

BARBICAN, LON­DON SEPTEM­BER 21 TO JAN­UARY 28

The first large-scale ex­hi­bi­tion of the Amer­i­can artist in the UK, the show presents over 100 works gath­ered from in­ter­na­tional mu­se­ums and pri­vate col­lec­tions, in­clud­ing some of the ear­li­est pieces in Basquiat’s oeu­vre. The main focus is the artist’s re­la­tion­ship with pop­u­lar me­dia—mu­sic, text, film and tele­vi­sion—all es­sen­tial in­flu­ences in his street-smart, neo-ex­pres­sion­ist art. barbican.org.uk
