The exhibition is the first major retrospective to be curated and executive produced solely by the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Over 200 paintings, drawings, ephemera and artifacts create an intimate and multidimensional portrait of Jean-Michel that can only be told by his family.
The striking exhibition design by David Adjaye includes immersive recreations of Basquiat’s childhood home and Great Jones Street studio.
The design of the accompanying book has an improvised, organic feel, like a scrapbook or family album.
The graphics utilize a vibrant palette inspired by the bright, pure color the artist used in his paintings.
