Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat

Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MFAH, 1001 Bissonnet Houston, TX 77005 United States

Exploring the pre-fame years of American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988), Boom for Real examines how New York City and the shifting arts culture of the late 1970s and 1980s shaped Basquiat’s early career. Artists who also emerged from that scene—Fab 5 Freddy, Nan Goldin, Jim Jarmusch, James Nares, Lee Quinones, and others—share memories that vividly evoke a young Basquiat and his milieu.
