Map Catalog for the Times Square Show. Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Map Catalog for the Times Square Show

New York: 1980. Three foolscap leaves, each reproduced by photocopy, printed on white paper from typescript, drawing and holograph, and stapled once at the upper left hand corner.

The map handout for the legendary exhibition, which changed the art world in incalculable ways at the dawn of the 1980's. Each leaf prints a map on the recto (drawn by Tom Otterness) with a list of artists at verso. Since there was no other catalog for the exhibition, this is in effect the catalog for the show. This was Basquiat's first exhibition, and he is named on the map. Also noted are Keith Haring, Rosemary Mayer, Becky Howland, David Hammons, Christy Rupp, Olivier Mosset, Kiki Smith, John (Johnny) Morton, of Electric Eels fame, and many, many more.

Folded once, else fine. Item #28037
