CHAPPAQUA LIBRARY VIRTUAL ART LECTURE SERIES: Graffiti/Post Graffiti
Graffiti/Post Graffiti: Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation – Through May 16, 2021 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The post-graffiti movement in 1980s New York City marked the transition of street art from city walls and subway trains onto canvas and into the art world. Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) became the galvanizing, iconic frontrunner of this transformational and insurgent movement in contemporary American art. This exhibit gives context to that movement.
