PARIS- trois têtes géantes du peintre Jean-Michel Basquiat présentées à la Fondation Vuitton.

  • The Vuitton Foundation exhibits Jean-Michel Basquiat, the painter who embodies the revolt of young New York artists of the 1980s. One of these giant heads is the star of this exhibition. It was made in 1982 by the American artist and is exhibited for the first time in Paris.
  • The Foundation of Bernard Arnault, patron of the luxury group LVMH, devotes a retrospective of some 100 works to the New York artist (1960-1988) who began to graffiti on the street, worked closely for a time with Andy Warhol before dying from an overdose: eight years of intense creations from 1980 to 1988.
  • The retrospective on the American artist opens with three giant heads, including the one bought at $110.5 million last year by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa. "Their eyes shoot you", and the heads show the human being "inside and outside".
  • The revolt expressed in his paintings is also marked by the Sida years that touched a whole generation.
