Jean Michel Basquiat exhibition @ Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris

Jean Michel Basquiat exhibition @ Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris
Jan 22 2011


Saturday morning ( in fact 1:00PM) out with the girls to see Jean Michel Basquiat exhibition @ Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris just in front of the Palais de Tokyo.
Of course the girls are late, anyway tickets were booked in advance to we don't have to queue otherwise it would have been a 30-40 min wait.
White open spaces with many HUGE paintings, I'm not too much much of a modern art freak so it doesn't talk to me as much as some other painters.
There are great paintings but some others are really...
Not as many people as for the Monet exhibition @ Grand Palais so you can really enjoy it and take your time without having assholes pushing you.You don't feel at all as if you were in the tube at rush hour which was the case @ Grand Palais.
It's also a very different audience: much more young and "trendy" compare to Monet.
My favorites were the paintings done in collaboration with Andy Warhol even though at the time critics didn't like it.
