Jean-Michel Basquiat pioneered a ground-breaking visual language that confronted issues of racism, identity, and social tension. “Writing the Future” charts how he and his community of artists took street art from city walls and subway trains onto canvas and into the art world. They created a space for their work and voices—paving a path for artists of color for generations to come.
