About

Barbican young creatives, along with artist and curator Antonio Roberts, present a collection of work in response to Basquiat: Boom for Real Artist and curator Antonio Roberts worked with a group of Barbican young creatives over three months to create artwork in response to the exhibition Basquiat: Boom for Real currently showing in the Barbican Art Gallery. Over the course of four sessions the group examined artist Jean-Michel Basquiat's explosive creativity and imagined the techniques and methods he might use if he was still creating art today. The resulting animations combine more traditional methods of creation such as photography and collage, with more experimental practices such as glitch art, digital collages, animated gifs and projections. Each animated selfportrait reflects the identity of the artist who created it. Artists: Max Baraitser Smith Isabella Barbaro Alex Cole Hector Dyer Antonio Roberts
