Q&A with director Paul Tschinkel to follow

This film features a rare interview with painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, conducted in 1981 in his studio on Crosby Street in SOHO. Basquiat, an internationally renowned artist as well as enfant terrible of the 1980s art scene, died tragically in 1988 at the age of twenty-seven. Both during his brief life and since his untimely death, numerous stories and legends that chronicle his quick rise to art world stardom have arisen.

In this ART/new york installment, the twenty-one-year-old Basquiat, already a well-known art figure is interviewed by art historian and curator Marc H. Miller. The artist’s fondness for high jinks as well as his exuberant spirit are captured as he describes his working process and comments upon his art-world persona.
