Basquiat’s oeuvre is more current than ever and remains every bit as pioneering and visionary as it was back then. His works turn a spotlight both on African heritage and on problematic hierarchies in society, with omnipresent racism being the theme that he found most important and personally relevant. As an eccentric outsider and an exploited superstar of his times, Basquiat now stands among contemporary art’s most significant key figures.
This exhibition at the ALBERTINA Museum is Austria’s first comprehensive museum-based retrospective featuring Jean-Michel Basquiat’s extraordinary oeuvre.
