WRITING THE FUTURE: BASQUIAT AND THE HIP-HOP GENERATION
In the early 1980s, art and writing as graffiti began to transition from New York City walls and subway trains onto canvas and into art galleries. Jean-Michel Basquiat became the galvanizing, iconic frontrunner of this transformational and insurgent movement in contemporary American art, which resulted in an unprecedented fusion of creative energies that defied longstanding racial divisions. Writing the Future features Basquiat's work in painting, sculpture, drawing, video, music and fashion, alongside works by his contemporaries such as Keith Haring, Futura, and more.
