About the discounted tix to see Basquiat x Warhol at the Brant Foundation

EVG photos from last month

For the remaining month of the Basquiat x Warhol exhibit at the Brant Foundation, tickets are 50% off every Wednesday from 2-6 p.m. 

Some math: for East Village residents on Wednesdays between 2-6 p.m., the cost would be $7.50, $10 if you live outside the neighborhood. Find ticket info here

As previously noted about the show at 421 E. Sixth St. between Avenue A and First Avenue... 
On view from Nov. 1, 2023, through Jan. 7, 2024, this is the first time the collaboration has been the subject of a major New York exhibition since Andy Warhol & Jean-Michel Basquiat at Gagosian Gallery in 1997. The exhibition is traveling from Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris and has benefited from the collaboration between the two institutions.
The Brant Foundation's first show here in the spring of 2019 featured work by Basquiat — some 70 works collectively valued at $1 billion. A career-spanning Warhol collection was here back in the spring.

One was a great painter the other a showman. Why is Andy in this show?

He's there because it's not the EV Revolutionary Art Committee's decision, it's a private enterprise god forbid.

Warhol is there because Warhol and Basquiat collaborated to create paintings. That’s what the show is all about: their collaboration. Are you serious with your comment?

Both are extremely talented with points of view that have contributed immensely to the art world.
