Catalogue Note

“Basquiat is not just another highly gifted contemporary artist, and his art is not just another chapter in modernist art history. Yes, his work acknowledges, honors, and partakes of that cultural tradition, but it comes from and addresses something else. It is this ‘something else’ which ultimately draws us to his work, and which attracts even those not versed in contemporary art. As viewers, we intuit Basquiat’s creative output is not merely the reflection of his personal thoughts, feelings, and passions. What Basquiat has put before us transcends the vision of an individual. Rather, it reflects and speaks to more universal truths shared by all cultures, all peoples, for all times. The art of Jean-Michel Basquiat provides us with a means of learning about who we really are.”
