AGO: Basquiat Collection
If you haven't gotten the chance to view the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibit currently being held at the Art Gallery of Ontario, you definitely don't want to miss out on the chance to see such an eclectic gallery. The Basquiat collection offers somewhat crude yet refined pieces, with satirical observations in regards to the state of New York City during the 1980's and it's fascinating how a number of the key issues which reoccur in his work are still paramount in the 21st century, such as race and class divisions. Although Jean-Michel died early, he'll live forever through the great works he left us all. The exhibit runs until May 10th, 2015.
