NOISE ON THE CANVAS
I visited the first exhibition presented by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s family in Los Angeles of Jean-Michel’s work. The expo is called King Pleasure, and seeing how a family presents the works is interesting. It is touching, beautiful and unique. The family opted to present the collection of art, memorabilia, and installations of Jean-Michel’s environment, along with playlists, projections, diaries, and more.
In conjunction with this exhibit and the Keith Harring exhibit at the Broad across the street – I went to see a panel discussion with Public Enemy co-founder #ChuckD, #KeithHaring Foundation Executive Director #GilVazquez, #LisaneBasquiat, sister of #JeanMichelBasquiat, and producer curator and super badass #LorrieBoula discuss hip hop’s global impact, including its influence on visual art and culture.
The panel discussion is on the #thebroadmuseum Youtube channel – look up “How Hip Hop Became a Revolution in American Visual Art and Culture.” and visit #KingPleasure before it leaves Los Angeles in October 2023 – it is worth a visit to Los Angeles.
I look forward to getting tickets for another panel discussion with Lisane Basquiat in a few weeks.
