Basquiat: Boom for RealThis September, the Barbican hosts the first large-scale exhibition in the UK on late American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Basquiat: Boom for Real draws from international museums and private collections to showcase the work of the pioneering prodigy of the downtown New York art scene, who came to the media's attention in 1978 when he teamed up with his classmate Al Diaz to graffiti enigmatic statements across the city under the collective pseudonym SAMO. A famously self-taught artist, Basquiat then went on to become one of the most celebrated artists of his generation. This exhibition will bring together more than 100 works, many of which have never before been seen in the UK.
