The Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition at MUDEC in Milan presents a retrospective of Basquiat’s short but intense career, featuring almost 100 works from private collections.
The exhibition brings the art of graffiti to the general public with works by the artist who, along with his friend and peer Keith Haring, elevated the status of street art, giving it a place within the world’s museums.
Basquiat channelled into his art the violent emotions of street life, drawing inspiration from American pop art and mass media, comics and advertising languages. Often working with the theme of human identity, he brought the issue of race to the attention of the wider public through his art.
