Jean-Michel Basquiat (Fondation Louis Vuitton)

(No reviews yet)
  • Accompanies  a major double exhibition on Jean-Michel Basquiat and Egon Schiele -  two artists that died too young but created masses of work over the  course of a decade, at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, from 2nd  October 2018 to 4th January 2019
  • Comprises drawings, gouaches and paintings sourced from private collections and museums all over the world

In  2018 the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, will host exhibitons on two of  the greatest artists of the 20th century - Egon Schiele, and  Jean-Michel Basquiat. Both exhibitions will have the same curator, and  will be held at the same time. The shows will illustrate exactly what it  is that linked the two artists: line, and the use of expressive force.

This,  the catalogue of the Basquiat exhibition, labelled "the definitive  exhibition" by its curator, brings together 100 of the artist's most  important masterpieces, sourced from interational museums and private  collections. With the astonishing radicalness of his artistic practice,  Basquiat renewed the concept of art with enduring impact. This Basquiat  retrospective centres on the idea of Basquiat's unique energetic line,  his use of words, symbols, and how he integrates collage in his  paintings, sculptures, objects, and large-scale drawings.

The  catalogue includes texts by great authors, including Paul Schimmel who  tells of his meeting with Basquiat in California; Francesco Pellizi who  knew Basquiat well and has not written about him for a long time; and  Okwui Enwezor who talks about the Afro American identity.
