Join the AFA for a private, after-hours tour of the inaugural exhibition Jean-Michel Basquiat at the Brant Foundation’s new space in New York City with Sabrina Marsalisi, Director of Education and Programming.
The Brant Foundation will present a solo exhibition of works by Jean-Michel Basquiat to celebrate the opening of its new space in New York City’s East Village. Organized in collaboration with the Fondation Louis Vuitton and curated by Brant Foundation founder Peter M. Brant and Dr. Dieter Buchhart, the exhibition will bring together Basquiat’s most important masterworks from the Brant Collection as well as from international museums and private collections.
About the exhibition, Brant said, “Basquiat has been a cornerstone of the East Village art scene for decades, and to bring his work back to the neighborhood that inspired it is a great privilege… Our family is thrilled to launch The Brant Foundation’s New York space with an artist who is central to the collection, and above all to share his legacy with the community that was fundamental in shaping it.”
The Brant Foundation occupies a century-old building originally designed as a substation for Consolidated Edison. The building subsequently served as the home and studio of famed artist Walter De Maria from the mid-1980s until his death in 2013.
