Basquiat in Basel



Today I finally manage to go and see the Basquiat exhibition in Basel. On the occasion of his fiftieth birthday, the Fondation Beyeler is devoting the first large exhibition ever held in Europe to this outstanding American draftsman and painter. Comprising over 100 works, it traces Basquiat’s unique artistic development and reflects his place in art history. Conceived as a retrospective, the exhibition also enables a rediscovery and re-evaluation of one of the most fascinating personalities in the history of recent art. It was amazing. The location is beautiful and the work is just unbelievable. The exhibition is on until the 5.Sep.2010 and worth a look.
