Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation


How hip-hop culture and graffiti electrified the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat and his contemporaries in 1980s New York. Writing the Future features Basquiat’s works in painting, sculpture, drawing, video, music and fashion, alongside works by his contemporaries—and sometimes collaborators—A-One, ERO, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura, Keith Haring, Kool Koor, LA2, Lady Pink, Lee Quiñones, Rammellzee and Toxic.

MFA Publications, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the publishing imprint of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, represents the collections, exhibitions, and educational mission of the MFA in the broadest sense. As such, while it fills the museum publisher’s traditional role of designing, editing, and producing catalogues and scholarly monographs, it also maintains a trade publishing program devoted to arts-related books of more general appeal.
