“Basquiat and the Bayou” | Prospect.3 @ The Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Prospect.3: A Show Within a Show: ‘Basquiat and the Bayou Presented by The Helis Foundation’:

‘Basquiat and the Bayou Presented by The Helis Foundation’ is a focused exhibition of eight to ten paintings and drawings by Jean‐Michel Basquiat that consider the work of this important artist in light of his relationship to the American South.

The exhibition will be shown as part of ‘Prospect.3: Notes for Now,’ October 25, 2014 through January 25, 2015 at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. “Basquiat and the Bayou Presented by The Helis Foundation” embodies the core themes that will be echoed in Artistic Director Franklin Sirmans’ vision for Prospect.3, which will bring together several art historical investigations alongside contemporary artworks.

“Basquiat and the Bayou Presented by The Helis Foundation” is made possible by The Helis Foundation. Additional support is contributed by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Edythe and Eli Broad Foundation.
