MOCATV "Art In The Streets" Jean-Michel Basquiat and Patti Astor at the Fun Gallery

By - Saturday, December 29th, 2012

The latest episode of MoCATV’s series Art In the Streets takes a look back at New York in the 80’s, featuring Patti Astor talking about the Fun Gallery during it’s run as the premier space to show graffiti and street art from 1981-1985. Also, Fab 5 Freddy talks about his solo show at the gallery. Fun was the first venue to host solo exhibitions for many of the then emerging graffiti artists and introduced many others to the established art world. Keith Haring, Lee Quinones, Dondi White, Sharp, Fab 5 Freddy, and Futura 2000 were among those early exhibitors of graffiti, as was Brooklyn native Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose work is examined in the second half of this video. This video was posted by Bates on his blog on 12ozProphet.
