Foundation Louis Vuitton – 8 Avenue du Mahatma Gandhi, Paris

As fashion month comes to a close, there is one Parisian show happening off the runway that is sure to leave you speechless and definitely wanting more. The work of Jean-Michel Basquiat is taking the French capital by storm in the newly opened exhibition honoring the late artist’s legacy at the Foundation Louis Vuitton.

The career long retrospective, aptly titled ‘Jean-Michel Basquait’, celebrates one of the most significant painters of the 20th century, covering Basquiat’s whole, albeit short, career from 1980 to 1988. Spread over four levels of the Foundation’s impressive, Frank Gehry-designed structure, the exhibition focuses on 120 defining works by the late artist, including a selection of paintings previously unseen in Europe.

With seminal works on view including Untitled (Skull) (1981), Untitled (Yellow Tar and Feathers) (1982), In Italian (1983), Grillo (1984) and Riding with Death (1988), this prolific career-long survey should not be missed!
