Basquiat Before Basquiat - East 12th Street, 1979-1980. <p>Basquiat Before Basquiat focuses on the artistic life of Jean-Michel Basquiat from 1979 to 1980, when he shared an apartment in the East Village with his friend, Alexis Adler. This period stands as an important transitional moment for the artist, as he migrated away from the street toward a studio practice, and anticipates his breakthrough works of 1981. Through paintings, sculpture, works on paper, a notebook, and other ephemera, as well as Adler's numerous photographs from this period, this exhibition ultimately explores how the context of life in New York informed and formed Basquiat's artistic practice.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Ryan McGinley: The Kids Were Alright <p>Ryan McGinley: The Kids Were Alright focuses on the photographer’s work from 1998 to 2003. These early photos and Polaroids—many of which have never been exhibited before—document his friends and collaborators in downtown New York City. In the process, McGinley created a powerful portrait of his generation: at turns raw and brilliant, poignant and disturbing, and focused on moments of both pleasure and tedium. With this body of work, he demonstrates a sweeping range of emotions and, with adept facility, enables these everyday moments to pulsate with life.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
