The Brant Foundation
421 East 6th Street
The Brant Foundation will present a solo exhibition of works by Jean-Michel Basquiat to celebrate the inauguration of its new space in New York City’s East Village.
The space occupies a century-old building originally designed as a substation for Consolidated Edison. The building subsequently served as the home and studio of famed artist Walter De Maria from the mid-1980s until his death in 2013. Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Tang Architects is renovating the former substation to create a 16,000-square-foot building that features 7,000 square feet of exhibition space arrayed across four floors. The project includes two new gardens adjacent to the structure and a landscaped roof terrace.
Organized in collaboration with the Foundation Louis Vuitton and curated by Brant Foundation founder Peter M. Brant and Dr. Dieter Buchhart, the inaugural exhibition will bring together Basquiat’s most important masterworks from the Brant Collections as well as from international museums and private collections.
