Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation
Jean-Michel Basquiat and his contemporaries were electrified and unleashed by hip-hop culture and graffiti in 1980s New York City. In this book edited by Liz Munsell and Greg Tate, with text by J. Faith Almiron, Dakota DeVos, Hua Hsu, and Carlo McCormick, discover not only how Basquiat became the frontrunner of this transformative movement in contemporary American art, but how the resulting energy and creativity defied longstanding racial divisions. Basquiat’s works are featured in this book, published to accompany a major exhibition, alongside works by Keith Haring, A-One, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura, Lady Pink, and more.
