Jean-Michel Basquiat

Regular price Regular price $10

This poster was originally produced in 2013 as a double-fold announcement for the exhibition Jean-Michel Basquiat at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York, but remains unfolded. The front of the poster reproduces Tseng Kwong Chi’s 1987 color photograph of Basquiat surrounded by paintings and sculptures in his studio on Great Jones Street in New York; the back includes the exhibition details and a statement by the artist: “I really wanted to be the best artist in the class, but my work had a really ugly edge to it.” Mounted thirty-one years after Larry Gagosian first presented Basquiat’s work in Los Angeles, the exhibition featured more than fifty works from public and private collections, spanning his brief but meteoric career. It was enormously popular, drawing tens of thousands of visitors to the gallery.
