It’s been more than 30 years since Basquiat‘s last major exhibition in Germany. From February 16 until May 27, Schirn in Frankfurt is showcasing a special installation centering around the iconic artist’s rela­tion­ship to music, text, film, and tele­vi­sion.

In speaking on one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, the gallery had this to say: “Basquiat’s raw, vibrant imagery is matched by a star­tling erudi­tion, seen in the frag­ments of bold, capi­talized text that abound in his works.”

They then point out that the installation is the first of its kind, situ­ating the artist’s works within a broader cultural context.

Ahead of the opening, we had the opportunity to get a peek at Schirn’s celebratory Basquiat exhibition. For a glimpse inside, scan through the gallery above.
