For perhaps surprisingly the first time: a large-scale exhibition of the late New York art phenomenon, at the Barbican Centre, London.


Genre: Exhibition

Venue: Barbican Centre, London, England

Time: September 21 2017 till January 28 2018

Curators & Sponsors: Made possible in part by an Art Fund Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant, with additional generous support from the Basquiat Exhibition Circle and sponsors, NET-A-PORTERPHILLIPS, and tp bennett. Public programme funded by Cockayne Grants for the Arts, a donor-advised fund of the London Community Foundation.

Description: Titled, Basquiat: Boom For Real, this is the first large-scale exhibition in the United Kingdom of work by Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988), American artist of Haitian descent, prodigy and phenom of the New York art scene during the 1980s, whose highly expressive and distinctive vision led to creative associations with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Blondie, among others. The exhibition is unprecedented in both its geographic location and an impressive selection of over 100 works from international museums and private collections, rare film, photography, and archive material.
