Basquiat: live fast, die young – with Marie-Anne Mancio
Wed 4 October 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
From New York street artist to auction-house darling, Basquiat lived fast and died young. But what he accomplished in his short life put the New York 1980s art scene on the global map.
Writer and art historian Marie-Anne Mancio explores the art and contemporary buzz of the legacy-making graffiti artist and street-urchin who played with Warhol, dated Madonna and died of a drug overdose at 27.
Evening event with cash bar.
In time for the opening of the Barbican Gallery next year, Basquiat: Boom for Real (21 September 2017 – 28 January 2018) – the first large-scale UK exhibition of iconic painter and New York downtown scene prodigy Jean-Michel Basquiat.
