Seeing Loud: Basquiat and Music
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada
01 November 2022 - 19 February 2023

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Canada) is pleased to present a new exhibition featuring works by Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Organised in collaboration with the Musée de la musique - Philharmonie de Paris, Seeing Loud: Basquiat and Music is the first large-scale multidisciplinary exhibition dedicated to the role of music in the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Starting with an exploration of the music that shaped Basquiat's New York, the exhibition sheds new light on his career as a performer and musician, particularly with the band Gray. It also analyses the compositional techniques of his painting in relation to music and refers to his ties to record labels, musicians, cultures and sounds. The show offers a never-before-seen perspective on Basquiat's artistic and musical career.


The exhibition will be on view until February 19, 2023.
