Reviews

A revolution unto himself, Jean-Michel Basquiat exploded into the art world at a time when another revolution was in full-swing; and he enthusiastically embraced hip-hop aesthetics and politics as influences.--Ken Scrudato "Blackbook"
Writing the Future' differentiates itself as the first major exhibition to contextualize Basquiat's work in relation to his peers associated with hip-hop culture.--Chadd Scott "Forbes: Media"
Features brilliantly hued images of work by both Basquiat and some of his contemporaries.--Helen Holmes "Observer New Review"
features Basquiat's works in painting, sculpture, drawing, video, music and fashion, alongside works by his contemporaries--and sometimes collaborators--A-One, ERO, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura, Keith Haring, Kool Koor, LA2, Lady Pink, Lee Quiñones, Rammellzee and Toxic. Throughout the 1980s, these artists fueled new directions in fine art, design and music, reshaping the predominantly white art world and driving the now-global popularity of hip-hop culture.--Editors "ARTFIXdaily"
