The Broad: Summer Happenings, Basquiat


Summer Happenings at The Broad ends the season with an homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat. Punk meets hip hop, gay meets straight, black meets white, and downtown party meets uptown art world— influences that made Basquiat the man he was. Zebra Katz and Downtown Boys provide a musical clash of punk and hip hop. DJ Rashida and Michael Stock turn The Oculus into a downtown dance party. Mecca V A and The MOVEMENT movement and Jay Carlon offer choreographed interventions and “dance-bombs.” Shani Crowe’s performance is centered on cultural coiffure and beauty ritual related to the diasporic African, and Damon Locks will present a sound piece based on themes found in Basquiat's paintings.
