We’re so excited about our partnership with The High Museum of Art’s Basquiat exhibition,
we decided to put out a Basquiat-inspired mixtape series! Each member of our company
has created a playlist that reminds them of the prolific JMB. Check out Jazmine’s mix:
Basquait’s work to me speaks volumes because of his strategic efforts to be random and unconventional. His messages mirror some repetition within the hidden intention of his constructive wording. The choices he makes with incomplete phrasing and misspelled words were striking to me because it made me think. This playlist is fun and colorful like Basquiat, but with lots of emotional content and underlying meaning. Each of these songs had a natural flow to me and even hint at something previously heard within a different songs message. The idea of this is to compliment Basquiat and his choice to reflect and remind constantly. He’s telling a story that a lot of people can find some common ground in.
Basquiat Bash is May 6th at The High Museum of Art.
