MOVIES AT THE ASPEN ART MUSEUM: BASQUIAT

November 18, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-6

MOVIES AT THE ASPEN ART MUSEUM: BASQUIAT

Presenting a wide range of themes, film screenings at the AAM reveal important perspectives of filmmakers and artists of our time.

Director Focus: Julian Schnabel

As a complement to his exhibition of paintings this fall at the AAM, this season’s Movies at the Museum celebrates three feature-length films by Julian Schnabel that tell the true stories of brave, creative individuals.

Basquiat tells the story of the meteoric rise of youthful artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Starting out as a street artist, living in Tompkins Square Park in a cardboard box, Basquiat is “discovered” by Andy Warhol’s art world and becomes a star. But success has a high price, and Basquiat pays with friendship, love, and eventually, his life.
