Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Talking Art Series: In Conversation with Basquiat’s Friends
17 April @ 6.30 pm - 9.00 pmtbc
Basquiat scholar Chaédria LaBouvier moderates a discussion between curator/dealer/writer Jeffrey Deitch and artist Leonard “Futura” Hilton McGurr (one-time Basquiat collaborator) as they reflect on their personal experiences with Jean-Michel Basquiat and how his work intermingled with underground music, performance, and street art. This event will include a 20-minute version of Tamara Davis’s film Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child. Basquiat’s painting Cabra (above), acquired for $11 million for the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi’s collection, will also be on view at the Louvre Abu Dhabi at this time.
