About

Andy Warhol/Jean Michel Basquiat: Original Paintings Exhibition Poster, 1985: 'Palladium Presents Warhol And Basquiat' The rare original, highly sought-after companion piece to the iconic exhibition poster of the two great artists standing side by side in boxing gloves. This version was issued for an invitation only, one-night event at the Palladium following the exhibit at Shafrazi gallery. Very few were printed and more importantly, survived in decent shape. This work is by far one of the rarest Basquiat/Warhol collectibles of all and even more difficult to find in good condition. Original photo by Michael Halsband. Offset lithograph on wove paper. original 1st (and only authorized) printing, 1985. Dimensions: 11 x 17 inches Quattro fold-lines as originally issued; occasional soft handling creases and minor surface wear, including a small soiling spot. Overall sharp colors and in otherwise very good condition given the history of this piece (many other examples were damaged and faded). Provenance: Private collection, NY Stored flat using archival materials Shipped securely from New York, NY History Tony Shafrazi, November 2015: "My good friend, the Swiss gallerist Bruno Bischofberger, had worked with Andy Warhol since the mid 1960s. He got to know Jean-Michel’s paintings and started working with him in 1982 or ’83. There had been a suggestion of a collaboration between Warhol, Basquiat, and Francesco Clemente. Then, Jean-Michel and Andy, very enthusiastically and seriously, went on to undertake a whole processes of painting collaboratively at Warhol’s Factory for a year to a year and half, making somewhere between 70 and 80 large paintings that represented an extraordinary—and very rare in history—body of work. Their joint body of work represented a whole year and half of collaboration and production. It was not an overnight thing. The two artists worked together, one painting over the other, back and forth, and I immediately thought of two people sparring and boxing together, which is how I hit upon the idea of a boxing theme for the show’s advertisement." The full title of the poster is: "Palladium Presents Warhol Basquiat Paintings, Saturday September 14 1985, 10 PM, Palladium, 126 East 14 Street, Exhibition at Tony Shafrazi Gallery, Complimentary Admission for Two." On the Palladium Palladium was built as a deluxe movie theater by move mogul William Fox in 1927. Beginning in 1971 it was also utilized as a concert venue, then later converted into a nightclub in 1985 by Steve Rubell of Studio 54. Related Categories Warhol Basquiat Boxing Poster.
