Jean-Michel Basquiat, the illusive Brooklyn-born street artist of Haitian & Puerto Rican descent, has become a cult favorite in the art world since his untimely death in 1988. In the past five years alone, various exhibitions of his work have been shown in New York City and around the world, but this newest exhibition offers something a little bit different.
Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks opens to the public on Friday, April 3rd at the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibition features 160 pages of these rarely seen documents, along with related works on paper and large-scale paintings. This multi-media exhibit is sure to be a treat for Basquiat fans, and those who are interested in seeing into the mind of an artist.
On view until August 23, 2015. For more information, please visit BrooklynMuseum.org.
