MUSIC, TECHNOLOGY, AND PERFORMANCE ART COLLIDE
TO DECODE BASQUIAT IN BROOKLYN
MAY 21ST, 2015
630PM Jahan Loh
Brooklyn, New York May 18th, 2015 – Basquiat will be honored, recognized, and decoded across 3 venues on May 21st, 2015 throughout different venues in Brooklyn. Art Off The Wall #Decoding Basquiat is an interactive exhibition and performance that will be held throughout the day on May 21st, 2015, and will include music, live visual art, performance art, and more by a roster of international artists and performers from across the globe.
Bridging the gap between performance art, technology, music, and visual art, The Brooklyn Museum, Bishop Gallery, and The Kymberle Project will be a part of a moment in history that Brooklyn has not seen before. With the massive attendance for their new exhibition, Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks, The Brooklyn Museum has decided to further engage museum attendees with interactive programming that will help the world decode not only Basquiat's artists identity, but his personal identity as well.
Creative Directors Leslie DuMouchel and Sarah Sperling in collaboration with the Brooklyn Museum, have teamed up with a team of super star cultural curators in order to bring this event to fruition. Michael Peterson and N Carlos Jay, the two community leaders and cultural curators who recently produced street art show Brooklyn Is The Future at The Vazquez, are new editions to the team. They will be providing a bridge into what the visual artists and tech scene in Brooklyn have to offer. Prominent visual and performance artists Michael Holman, Kessed the poet, Al Diaz and Jahan Loh, amongst many others, help bring the pure vision of the event into fruition, will join them.
The list of sponsors includes Global Protection, Uber, Hercules, Revolt, Life Clothing, Bomber Ski Perrier and many more. With a confirmed RSVP list of over 3,000 people from over 6 different countries, this is definitely an event the world does not want to miss.
