Homepage > News in Paris > Basquiat X Warhol

After the “Jean-Michel Basquiat” exhibition in 2018, the Foundation continues its exploration of the artist’s work, this time revealing his collaboration with Andy Warhol.
From 1984 to 1985, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) and Andy Warhol (1928-1987) produced around 160 canvases together, “four-handed”, some of which were among the greatest of their respective careers. Witness to their friendship and this common production, Keith Haring (1958-1990) will speak of a “conversation occurring through painting, instead of words”, and of two minds merging to create a “third, separate and unique “.
“Basquiat × Warhol, à quatre mains”, the most important exhibition ever devoted to this singular work, brings together more than three hundred works and documents, including eighty canvases signed jointly; Individual works by each artist are also presented, as well as a set of works by Futura 2000, Michael Halsband, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Kenny Scharf… in order to restore the artistic scene of downtown New York in the 1980s.
