Bon ap­petit

#Legend - - ALPHA -

Two artists, two ex­hi­bi­tions, all un­der one roof – more specif­i­cally, un­der the Frank Gehry-de­signed roof at the Fon­da­tion Louis Vuit­ton in Paris. The ex­hi­bi­tions Egon Schiele and Jean-Michel Basquiat un­veil the lives and works of the two artists, both fas­ci­nat­ing for their fleet­ing­ness and in­ten­sity. Hav­ing both died at age 28, in less than a decade fol­low­ing their deaths, they be­came ma­jor fig­ures in the art world. They’re linked by their destiny and their for­tune, that of a short-lived body of work – the im­pact and per­ma­nency of which have few equals. Oc­to­ber 3, 2018–Jan­uary 14, 2019.
