Our Friend, Jean

October 17 - October 24

In honor of homecoming week, a touring exhibit featuring more than 20 early works from Jean-Michel Basquiat arrives at Howard University. Organized by Hennessy, Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the Brooklyn-Based Bishop Gallery and Group Black, the largest collective of Black-owned media, Our Friend Jean  is a curated collection of roughly two dozen artworks on loan from Basquiat’s friends, lovers, and collaborators, including photographer Alexis Adler, Basquiat’s friend and roommate whose rare photographs collection shines a light on Basquiat’s personal life. The exhibit is stopping at six HBCUs through December.
