You read the title correctly, another great in the Black American community who put his name to fame with vivid and emotional paintings is now online. It's about time you may ask? Basquiat always adopted an up-close and personal edge that perhaps lent opinion to galleries in the flesh. However, there comes a time when a name becomes so synonymous with its cause that another layer of interest is created.
And indeed, it was possible to witness the exhibition in person as well. Those with the lucky location were able to visit the Brant Foundation and see the exhibit. Now fully online, the culture of virtual art is setting deep roots. There is virtue in virtual after-all, when it makes the world a more accessible and open place to live in.
With help from Dr Dieter Buchhart and Fondation Louis Vuitton, a collection of Basquiat's most iconic and moving specimens were displayed and then adapted for online viewing. As a pivotal player n the communication of Black Struggle in America, the feelings and sensations brought about by his striking and raw depictions of life, it's a perfect moment to highlight this great artist. Even now, 30 years after his death, the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat resonates and preaches across a complete spectrum of culture.
You can witness the exhibition yourself here.
