Jean-Michael Basquiat | Museum, Website & Fab 5 Freddy

Basquiat Through June 5th, 2005, the Brooklyn Museum has a special “exhibition of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s paintings, works on paper, and sculptures.” The exhibition will eventually move to the MOCA in LA (California) and the MFA in Houston (Texas).

Those in NYC can go see it free tonight (Saturday May 7th, 2005) as part of the museum’s First Saturdays program. (If you didn’t already know, the museum has a big free party (with musicians) every first saturday of the month.)

Tonight’s First Saturday is especially cool. On the bill:
– Sridhar Shanmugam’s ensemble performs music and dance from South India.
– Haitian-American violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain performs a mix of classical, jazz, and hip-hop, inspired by paintings in Basquiat.
Fab 5 Freddy, hip-hop Renaissance man, connects his friend Basquiat’s work to the 1980s music scene.
Fab 5 Freddy hosts a dance party of Basquiat’s favorite new wave, hip-hop, and pop, featuring DJ B. Dub and other friends of the artist.
– DJ Sintalentos spins soul, funk, and hip-hop.


Those everywhere can learn about Basquiat and check out the collection on a special website.
