Citi is a proud sponsor of the Jean-Michel Basquiat: King Pleasure© exhibit.

The Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibit is more than an overview of his work; it’s also a loving look back at the artist as a son, brother and friend.

Co-curated by the artist’s sisters, Lisane Basquiat and Jeanine Heriveaux, more than 200 works and artifacts — many from the family’s private collection and never exhibited in public — are on view. It’s an intimate remembrance of the artist as a person, surfaced through his childhood notebooks, tender home movies, stories shared by friends and even his bicycle

As part of the Citi Inspires Speaker Series, Tina Davis, Citi interim chief marketing officer, sat down with the late artist’s sisters to talk about family, legacy and the meaning behind his most iconic motif: the crown.
