His unique compositions--collages of text and gestural painting across a variety of media--quickly made him one of the most important and widely known artists of the 1980s. This book provides a new approach to understanding the range and impact of Basquiat's practice, as well as its complex relationship to several key artistic and ideological debates of the late twentieth century, including the instability of identity, the role of appropriation, and the boundaries of expressionism. Jordana Moore Saggese argues that Basquiat, once known as the Black Picasso, probes not only the boundaries of blackness but also the boundaries of American art. Weaving together the artist's interests in painting, writing, and music, this book expands the parameters of aesthetic discourse to consider the parallels Basquiat found among these disciplines in his exploration of the production of meaning."@en ;
