Downtown ’81

Guided visit to the thematic exhibition (60’)

The itinerary focuses on the environment in which this rebel genius lived and worked: the New York scene of the eighties, the stage of phenomena like graffiti art, rap culture and hip hop, the explosion of the art market and of superstar artists. It was a world of bourgeois and radical chic whites that consecrated Jean-Michel as an International artist, catapulting him in a very short time from the underground urban environment to the jet set of New York art, dominated by managers of art galleries, art dealers and collectors perennially searching for new talents to be transformed into exchangeable commodities.
We will see the great number of influential figures of that period that the young artist met along his path: Andy Warhol, Madonna, Keith Haring, Larry Gagosian, even Gene Kelly.

Cost: 19 euro per person (entrance + guided visit), reservation recommended

Back of the black

Guided visit to the thematic exhibition (60’)

Hip pop, the Armani fashion, the innumerable women, Charlie Parker. These were only some of the passions of a boy who was tormented by a sense of inadequacy because of the colour of his skin and by a strong desire to make a name for himself in the art world and ride to fame.
In this visit, also thanks to the words of the artist and of those who knew him, we will notice how his works are a combination of his autobiographical experience, of social protest, of black pride and of a search for his identity which, together with an innate and primitive talent, make Basquiat the spokesman of extremely topical social and cultural matters.

Cost: 19 euro per person (entrance + guided visit), reservation recommended.
