The 27th Annual Helen Clark Berlind Symposium
The 27th Berlind Symposium is held in conjunction with the 107th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art, Zeitgeist: The Art Scene of Teenage Basquiat, a group exhibition focusing on the artists and scene around Jean-Michel Basquiat’s teen-aged, pre-fame years. The period covered in the exhibition tells the story of Jean-Michel’s early work, peers, and creative community in gritty, pre-AIDS, downtown New York—before the rise of the 80s art and real estate juggernaut.
Saturday, October 20
Doors open at 10:30 a.m. for coffee and refreshments.
One of several artists to gain fame from the New York City Subway graffiti movement, Quiñones’ style is rooted in popular culture, often with political messages, along with Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Quiñones was one of the innovators of New York’s street-art movement and is considered one of the most influential artists to emerge from the graffiti era.
