Born in 1960 in Brookly of a Haitian-American father and a Puerto Rican mother, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a writer and Neo-Expressionist painter, who collaborated with Andy Warhol, and who died tragically young in 1988.

With almost 100 works coming from private collections, this exhibit explores his brief, but intense, career. In a direct and seemingly infantile way, Basquiat was able to bring to the general public’s attention essential themes on human identity and the painful and still open question of race.

He was a fundamental person in the history of contemporary America because — unique for his day — he was able to weave the extreme urban energy of New York with his African roots, which were marked by slavery and deportation.
