Basquiat Bash

I attended Basquiat Bash at High Museum of Art to celebrate the work of Jean Michel-Basquiat. It was a cool Friday evening with my friend Katilia as we caught a performance by T. Lang Dance, enjoyed music spun by Source One, and explored “Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks” exhibit. It was a massive art-party full of eclectic, colorful, intriguing people, and one the best events I’ve attended at the High.

The High says that Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks “provides an unprecedented opportunity to peek inside an artist’s mind. These eight rare notebooks can be seen up close, sequentially, and in context with some of Basquiat’s major works.” There’s something very intimate about seeing an artist’s handwriting, sketches, and thoughts in their personal composition notebooks. It almost parallels seeing a person’s soul, even after they’ve passed on.
