About the artwork:
Jean-Michel Basquiat, Untitled (1960), 1983
This artwork is rendered in acrylic and oil stick on paper and features a solitary black figure that is interpreted by some to be Jean-Michel's self-portrait. The year 1960 is also significant, as this is his birth year, which also happened to coincide with the start of the Twist dance craze, the first time aluminum cans were used, and the year JFK was elected to the White House.
About the Jean-Michel Basquiat: King Pleasure© Exhibition:
Organized and curated by the family of Jean-Michel Basquiat, this exhibition of over 200 never-before-seen and rarely-shown paintings, drawings, multimedia presentations, ephemera, and artifacts tell the story of Jean-Michel from an intimate perspective, intertwining his artistic endeavors with his personal life, influences, and the times in which he lived.
“We didn’t want [the exhibition] to be a scholarly show. We didn’t want it to be a museum or gallery show. We really wanted it to be an experience. One that you felt showed Jean-Michel as a man, as a brother, as a son, as a nephew, as a grandson—that was our main goal and the experience that we wanted you to feel as soon as you stepped inside and are immersed in his lifetime.” - Jeanine Heriveaux
“This really was a labor of love and a walk for us through our own journey with Jean-Michel and our lives as three people coming into the Basquiat family. This was not a handoff to someone else to do. We personally decided every single thing that’s in here. These are works that haven’t been seen in decades. We’re not curators—we’re his sisters, we’re his family, and every work is ours, in our collection.” - Lisane Basquiat
