Brooklyn vs Milan


Only tangentially related to Canadian Art but I find it amusing that last year the Brooklyn Museum wrote that their Basquiat retrospective was 'the most comprhensive since 1992.' And the Milan Triennale says that their Basquiat retrospective 'qualifica come una delle piĆ¹ vaste retrospettive.' [qualification as one of the immensest retrospettive]

Brooklyn: "more than one hundred of Jean-Michel Basquiat's finest works, including many that have never been shown in the United States."
Milan: "mai realizzata in Europa...ottanta dipinti e quaranta disegni." [never realized in Europe...eighty paintings and forty designs]

Personally, I'm going to stand on the sidelines and withold judgement until I've seen how large the Asian Basquiat retrospective is.
