The Philharmonie de Paris wants to highlight the links between Basquiat’s art and music, with all their symbolic and political scope. Jean-Michel Basquiat engaged in art like a musician engages in his music. The artistic and technique processes of his painting were inspired by the world of music. Sampling, for example, is a method that is emblematic of both hip hop culture and his painting. It is also the inspiration behind our project. But technique is not the sole element; these processes engage our imagination and invent new worlds and experiences. Written into the spirit and historical context of artworks and content, our scenography project offers a specific listening experience for each of the five sections of the exhibition.
