Screening: "Basquiat"


Maier Museum of Art - 7 p.m.
Screening: "Basquiat" - A biopic of a major artistic figure of the NYC art scene of the 1980s, made by another major figure of that same moment, BASQUIAT was the directorial debut of painter Julian Schnabel. BASQUIAT tells the story of the meteoric rise of youthful artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Starting out as a street artist, living in Thompkins Square Park in a cardboard box, Basquiat becomes a star and a part of Andy Warhol's art world circle. But success has a price, and Basquiat pays with friendships, love, and eventually, his life. Performances by Jeffrey Wright, Gary Oldman, Benicio Del Toro, Dennis Hopper, Courtney Love, Parker Posey, Willem Dafoe, Christopher Walken, and David Bowie. (108 min) This event is part of a series of films screenings held on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. between Oct. 2-Nov. 10 at the Maier Museum of Art in conjunction with the 107th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art, "Zeitgeist: The Art Scene of Teenage Basquiat."
