Feature Exhibition: Neptune’s Place: Early Works By Jean-Michel Basquiat

Curated by Al Diaz — AKA SAMO

Brooklyn’s Bishop Gallery will show a collection of never-before-exhibited early works by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Over 20 pieces were made by Basquiat between 1979 and 1981 in the Manhattan apartment of his friend Lonny Lichtenberg, and the body of work is curated by the artists’s onetime collaborator, Al Diaz. (They worked together on the SAMO graffiti that could be spotted throughout New York in the late 1970s.)

Prior to being sold directly from Lichtenberg’s apartment to a friend and collector, these works have only been seen by a handful of individuals.

According to ArtNews: “Probably more than a handful of people are going to see them in Miami!”
