Description: Featuring over fifty works from public and private collections, this exhibition spans Basquiat's brief but meteoric career, which ended with his death at the age of twenty-seven. Thirty years after Larry Gagosian first presented his work in Los Angeles, twenty years after the first posthumous survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1992-93), and eight years after the Brooklyn Museum of Art retrospective (2005), viewers will have a fresh opportunity to consider Basquiat's central role in his artistic generation as a lightning rod and a bridge between cultures.
