Paying homage to the artist from a candid new perspective, the collection of photographs magnify a remarkable creative relationship between Taylor and Basquiat that emerged from experimental 1980s band GRAY consisting of Taylor, Basquiat, Michael Holman and Vincent Gallo, declared at the time by Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine as ‘possibly the best band on the planet’. Capturing the spirit of the late 70s and early 80s downtown NYC art scene, Front Room will house a unique collection of photographs shot by both Taylor and Basquiat with images from the Mudd club and GRAY performing at various venues in down town NYC.
