Published on the occasion of the exhibition Baselitz/Basquiat: 1981-1982, at Skarstedt, New York, this catalogue features full plate images, installation views, an archival timeline, annotated catalogue, and historic interviews between the artists and curator Henry Geldzahler.
The exhibition brought together the eminent works of Jean-Michel Basquiat (b. 1960) and Georg Baselitz (b. 1939) from 1981-1982, emphasizing a period which has become pivotal not only for the oeuvre of each artist, but for international contemporary art in general. Indeed, these works of uncommon visceral expression and striking contemporaneity attained concurrent international prominence in the early 1980s, effectively determining the artistic rhetoric of the time.
