The Museum of Fine Arts here in Boston (MFA Boston) is currently hosting an exhibition of work by Basquiat and some of his contemporaries. It's called "Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip Hop Generation." I have long been a Basquiat fan, but only seen one of his paintings in-person. So I masked up and headed to the museum. I attended the exhibit twice (partially because I love Basquiat and you miss things the first time through, and partially because I have a baby and someone had to stay home with him) once with Steve and once with my Mom.
The exhibition is a mixture of Basquiat's work and some of his contemporaries. Personally, I feel like his work stands head and shoulders above his contemporaries. Before I show you the exhibit, here's a quick video about his work that I found online and really like:
And here's a peek at the exhibit for you (I think it's pretty obvious what is Basquiat's work and what is other people's work, but you tell me):
Thanks for stopping by!
