Overview

In celebration of The Broad's fifth anniversary, the museum will dedicate its first and third floor galleries to a series of free exhibitions and in-depth, single-artist presentations in a unique, rolling sequence beginning February 8 until early 2021 that includes deep dives into the work of icons of American postwar art and 1960s pop, key artists of the 1980s New York and Los Angeles art scenes, and works by important figures of the 1990s to the present day.

An in-depth installation of Jean-Michel Basquiat opening June 6 features all 13 works by the artist in the Broad collection, including three works on view for the first time at The Broad: Santo 2 (1982); Deaf (1984); and Wicker (1984).
