Never-Before-Seen Basquiat Works Are Coming to X Contemporary

Some of Basquiat’s early works will be exhibited in public for the very first time.

Jean-Michel Basquiat is getting his first — and long overdue — UK-based exhibition in the form of next year’s “Boom For Real,” but that’s not the only Basquiat-centric news to come out of the art world as of late. Ahead of next year’s showing at London’s Barbican Centre, a bevy of never-before-seen works will hit Miami Basel offshoot X Contemporary next month. Exhibited by Brooklyn’s Bishop Gallery, the collection features paintings, collages and drawings alike — all of which were completed from 1979 to 1981 in the Manhattan apartment of the late artist’s longtime friend, Lonny Lichtenberg. Al Diaz, a former Basquiat collaborator, will be curating the pieces for the exhibition.

Having “only been seen by a handful of individuals” prior to now, the works will hit Miami’s Nobu Hotel from November 30 through December 4.
