Details

Accompanying a major exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery, this book opens with introductory essays from the curators, placing Basquiat’s work in a wider art historical context and exploring his career through the lens of performance. Six thematic chapters offer new research, with essays from poet Christian Campbell on SAMO©; curator Carlo McCormick on New York / New Wave; writer Glenn O’Brien on the downtown scene; academic Jordana Moore Saggese on Basquiat’s relationship to film and television; and music scholar Francesco Martinelli on Basquiat’s obsession with jazz. This insightful new survey also features extended captions, rare archival material, and extensive photography, demonstrating how Basquiat’s legacy remains more powerful and relevant than ever today.

Dieter Buchhart (Editor) is an art critic for Kunstforum International and the author of Keith Haring: The Political Line (DelMonico Books·Prestel).
