The Radiant Child

The Arts Arena fall program boasts a schedule packed with amazing events, but of all of them, I am most looking forward to the European premiere and screening of the documentary “Jean-Marie Basquiat: The Radiant Child,” at Door Studios on October 13. This film, made by Basquiat’s friend Tamra Davis, features never-before seen footage of the prolific artist painting and talking about his art, in the two years leading up to his death by overdose in 1988. The screening is officially in conjunction with the opening of the Basquiat exhibit at the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, beginning October 15. For more info, visit the Arts Arena website or Facebook page. Reservation required.
