ATOZ hosted a private preview and cocktail at the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition at the Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery.
ATOZ Tax Advisers Luxembourg, one of the main sponsors of the unique exhibition featuring the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, welcomed around 30 clients and friends for a preview cocktail on 4 May 2016. Gallery owners Audrey Bossuyt and Nordine Zidoun led guests through the exhibition during the evening, sharing their passion for the artist’s life and work. This first of its kind exhibition, which opened to the public on 7 May, has brought together 20 exclusive pieces by the late Brooklyn-born American artist from private collections all around Europe.
Keith O’Donnell, ATOZ Managing Partner expressed his special admiration for the artist :
“Basquiat is a fascinating artist and man whose art will surely inspire all who come to view the exhibition. On one level, there is an extraordinary output of work during his tragically short life, a brilliant legacy that crosses painting, street art and music. On another level, there is an extraordinary life, a story of our times. It’s the story of a multi-ethnic family emigrating to New York and raising a genius son who, even in the face of adversity, was determined to pursue his artistic passion. In reaching for the stars, Basquiat finally surpassed them, in the process enriching his family’s new homeland and many lives along the way, including Warhol and Madonna. We hope that our community, friends, colleagues and clients will enjoy the exhibition and that it will enrich all our lives.”
ATOZ is grateful to be able to sponsor this local exhibition, allowing the public to view and enjoy these private and rarely seen collections from such a remarkable artist. The exhibition runs until 4 June.
