BASQUIAT at the Fondation Beyeler


My absolute favourite at Art Basel 2023, Friday night event and seeing these works.


BASQUIAT!


THE MODENA PAINTINGS


In the summer of 1982, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) travelled to Modena in Italy. Gallery owner Emilio Mazzoli had invited the 21-year-old New York artist to produce new works on site for a solo exhibition. Within a few days, Basquiat painted eight large-format canvases, some of them now among his most celebrated and valuable works. In the end, however, the planned exhibition did not go ahead and the works were never shown together. More than 40 years later, all the “Modena Paintings”, which are now held in collections in the United States, Asia and Switzerland, are being displayed together for the very first time
