Basquiat: Boom for Real

Barbican Centre

21 Sep 201728 Jan 2018

The Barbican is staging the first large-scale exhibition in the UK of the work of American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
On the occasion, the show is bringing together a selection of more than 100 works from international museums and private collections, investigating on the artist relationship with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Blondie, among others. Featuring rare film, photography and archive material, the show captures the spirit of this self-taught artist, poet, DJ and musician whose influence, since his death at 27 in 1988, has been enormous.
