George, you “changed the world” and your life is an example your daughter will forever look up to and be changed by.

Take a Look at Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Influential Works in New Virtual Tour

Published

on

Last year, The Brant Foundation in New York City’s East Village opened with a monumental exhibition on Jean-Michel Basquiat. The show brought almost 70 works by Basquiat — created from 1980 to 1987 — back to the same neighborhood that had inspired him. Now, the foundation is providing a new virtual tour of the influential exhibition, allowing viewers to explore all four floors of the show and digitally view some of Basquiat’s most important works.



Spanning the artist’s entire oeuvre, the exhibition explores Basquiat’s prolific yet brief career and broad range of subjects. Highlights include several of the artist’s most celebrated large-scale canvases, such as two head paintings from 1981 and 1982, as well as the multi-paneled Grillo (1984). In other works like Arroz con Pollo (1981) and Price of Gasoline in the Third World (1982), Basquiat shed light on issues like colonialization, the African Diaspora and racial inequality. Other paintings immortalized his heroes, such as jazz legend Charlie Parker and boxers Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Louis.
