Art on Thursdays presents Heavy Lies the Crown: The Brief & Brilliant Career of Basquiat Online
After a troubled but privileged childhood, Jean-Michel Basquiat burst onto the 1980s art scene with vision and vitality. He was quickly recognized and earned celebrity status and friendships with leading artists like Andy Warhol. Basquiat’s work often focused on subjects that were personally meaningful to him as a young black man, including race, class and police violence. Find out how his paintings, peppered with poetry and sometimes inscrutable symbols, still resonate today. Image: Jean-Michele Basquiat. Trumpet, 1984.
