Come and meet this iconic painter through his work in his formative years. In the intimate setting of the apartment that he shared with former girlfriend Alexis Adler (1979).

SCHUNCK brings the exhibition Basquiat Before Basquiat: East 12th Street, 1979-1980 of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver to the European continent for the first time. Furthermore SCHUNCK invites the visitor to the vibrant and raw New York art scene in which Basquiat developed in no time from a street-artist to the iconic artst he is now. SCHUNCK presents the work he made during these years of development: from the poetic graffiti texts to the almost immediately coveted canvasses of which an early selection can be seen in the exhibition. We meet his NY scene trough the exhibition that ensured Basquiats breakthrough; the big and legendary Times Square Show (1980). In this co-created Time Square Show Basquiat exhibited together with others like Keith Haring, Nan Goldin and Jenny Holzer. SCHUNCK shows 50 original works from the exhibiton. Finally, the SCHUNCK exhibition highlights a special piece of Dutch art history by addressing the very first Dutch reception of the Basquiat and his scene.
