For Jean-Michel, the crown represented the struggle for power and recognition, particularly for marginalized communities. By incorporating crowns into his paintings and drawings, he celebrated the strength of these groups, while also critiquing the systems that sought to oppress them.
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
