Jean-Michel Basquiat pioneered a groundbreaking visual language that confronted issues of racism, identity, and social tension. “Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation” charts how he and his community of artists took street art into the fine art world, paving a path for artists of color for generations to come.

See paintings, sculpture, drawings, video, music, and fashion by Basquiat alongside works by his contemporaries—including A-One, Fab 5 Freddy, Keith Haring, Lady Pink, Rammellzee, and Toxic—and discover how these artists drove the global popularity of hip-hop culture.
