The chaotic brilliance of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat
Like Beat writers who composed their work by shredding and reassembling scraps of writing, artist Jean-Michel Basquiat used similar techniques to remix his materials. Pulling in splintered anatomy, reimagined historical scenes and skulls, he repurposed present day experiences and art history into an inventive visual language. Jordana Moore Saggese explores the chaotic and prolific art of Basquiat. [Directed by Héloïse Dorsan Rachet, narrated by Christina Greer, music by Stephen LaRosa].
