Picasso in Film: Basquiat
August 7 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
A biopic of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s short life, the film chronicles the rise and fall of Basquiat as he takes his place within the New York art scene after being discovered by Andy Warhol (David Bowie). In the film, the artist and his mother view a copy of Picasso’s infamous Guernica, a replica painted with permission from the artist’s estate. The politics of art at hand—this replica, per the terms of the agreement- was destroyed and the physical evidence returned to the artist’s estate after filming ended. Free.
