[Luxus+ Magazine] The Fondation Louis Vuitton will host Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol this spring

It will surely be the flagship exhibition of 2023, “Basquiat x Warhol – à quatre mains”, which will bring together some one hundred works by the two artists next spring at the Fondation Louis-Vuitton.

 

Several years after its exhibition devoted to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is organising a retrospective entitled “Basquiat x Warhol, À quatre mains”.

 

The two artists met through the gallery owner and collector Bruno Bischofberge. Their ambitions overlap: Andy Warhol was looking for transfiguration, renewal and candour, and Jean-Michel Basquiat was looking for a form of collective recognition. Basquiat admires Warhol as a key figure in the art world, the initiator of a new language and an original relationship with popular culture. For his part, Warhol found in Basquiat a new interest in painting.
