Jean-Michel Basquiat – The Radiant Child: dir Tamra Davis (2010)
25 March @ 7.00 pm - 9.00 pmFree
Tamra Davis pays homage to her friend in this definitive documentary, but also delves into Basquiat as an iconoclast. His dense, bebop-influenced neo-expressionist work emerged at a time when minimalist and conceptual art were in vogue; as a successful black artist, he was constantly confronted by racism and misconceptions. Much can be gleaned from insider interviews and archival footage, but it is Basquiat’s own words and work that powerfully convey the mystique and allure of both the artist and the man.
