Jean-Michel Basquiat Finally Gets a UK Show With "Boom for Real" Exhibition Opening in 2017

Next year’s exhibition at the Barbican Centre is the artist’s first on British soil.

A new show at London’s Barbican Centre next year marks the prolific U.S. artist’s first major exhibition on British soil and comes 28 years after his death. Boasting more than 100 works that traverse Basquiat‘s game-changing but tragically short-lived career, “Basquiat: Boom For Real” will shed light on the artist who became synonymous with New York’s underground art scene in the 1980s, taking in influences from everything from bebop jazz to 19th-century expressionism. The exhibition places extra emphasis on his early work and is sure to be one of 2017’s blockbuster shows.

The exhibit is set to open on September 21 of next year. For more information, visit Barbican’s website.
