Description ARKEN presented a large special exhibition of two American legends, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) and Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988). The exhibition presented individual works by the two artists and collaborative works, which Warhol and Basquiat created in the brief, but intense period from 1984 to 1985. The exhibition offered a unique window into an unusual collaboration between two very different artistic temperaments. While Warhol had long perfected the look and style of mass-production and Pop Art, young Basquiat manifested himself with a fiercely expressive painting style, a raw mix of symbols and characters growing out of the unpolished idiom of graffiti. ARKEN’s exhibition was the story of Warhol and Basquiat – the times they lived in, the artists’ roles, the myths and the mutual fascination that propelled the two artists’ singular collaboration and made sparks fly in the works. The exhibition was organized by curator Dieter Buchhart in collaboration with ARKEN Museum of Modern Art.
