Jean-Michel Basquiat x Brooklyn Museum: Unknown Notebooks

Jean-Michel Basquiat x Brooklyn Museum: Unknown Notebooks

Brooklyn-born artist Jean-Michel Basquiat filled numerous notebooks with poetry fragments, wordplay, sketches, and personal observations ranging from street life and popular culture to themes of race, class, and world history. This exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum was the first major exhibition of the artist’s notebooks.  Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks features 160 pages of these rarely seen documents, along with related works on paper and large-scale paintings.  Along with the exhibit, there were Basquiat licensed baseball caps, scarves and coffee mugs featured in the museum store.
