"Jean-Michel Basquiat: The moment has come" at the Guggenheim Museum, Bilba.

Basquiat Ironie d'un policier noir Collection particulière © Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat_Licensed byt Artestar NY

This pioneering exhibition in Europe includes hundreds of large format paintings and drawings from various American and European museums

and private collections. Famous for 20 years thanks to its destructive work against all norms, Basquiat disrupted the Newyork art scene in the beginning of the 1980’s. It owes its international reputation to its hard-hitting works and incredible sensitivity, which incorporated timeless themes such as racism, politics or social hypocrisy. Although his career was brutally interrupted by his premature death at the age of 27, his work continues to exert a huge influence.
Until the 1st November.
