The crux of the exhibition lies in the collaborative paintings and interconnected practices of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol. The two artists shared collective creative space in New York City, a city rife with possibility. The series of collaboration paintings, executed from 1984 – 85, sparked conversations between the two artists that are visible on each canvas – a visual language all their own that revitalized Warhol’s engagement with painting.
These collaborations were harshly criticized when the show opened. The poor reception marked the downfall of this pivotal relationship, which dissipated soon after with Warhol’s death in 1987, and Basquiat’s one year after. Thirty years later, Jack Shainman Gallery is proud to present these previously misunderstood works as an in-depth study to mine Basquiat and Warhol’s creative geniuses.
