Video Jam x Basquiat

Video Jam bring together artists from either side of the Atlantic for an evening of short films with original live soundtracks – all inspired by the life and works of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The audio-visual producers Video Jam curate events which combine film and live music in response to a site or theme,

and on this occasion have responded to the massive cultural impact of Basquiat – who is the subject of Boom for Real in our Art Gallery this autumn. All presenting new work, NYC-based filmmakers and musicians from the UK have been carefully selected, taking into consideration Basquiat’s relationship to TV, film and music, and placing him within the wider context of the time.

The film work covers a diverse range of genres - hand drawn animation, essay film, narrative, video art and more, while the musicians chosen – including the Mercury Prize winning Young Fathers and the Afro-tinged Ibibio Sound Machine – reflect Basquiat’s wide ranging musical tastes, from Bebop and Jazz to Hip Hop and experimental Noise.
