Basquiat × Art Basel

Fat Joe, French Montana, Busta Rhymes, and D-Nice all hit the Triller × The Bishop Gallery physical and digital curated experience during Miami’s Art Basel for the historic first-ever live NFT auction of rare photos of Jean-Michel Basquiat, a legendary neo-expressionist artist, by photographers Alexis Adler and Al Diaz.

Our Friend Jean NFT Auction, was an exclusive event of art, music along with a live NFT auction experience. For the first time, an incredible selection of NFTs featuring rare and personal photos of Basquiat were available on the Triller marketplace, a trailblazing AI-powered global platform, with exclusive previews and purchase opportunities onsite. The Bishop Gallery chose the Triller NFT marketplace because the Triller platform has been specifically engineered to minimize the minting process’s computing costs and complexities to reduce the carbon footprint effects and provide accessibility for creators looking to monetize through NFT sales.

The photos of Basquiat being introduced to the blockchain, gave the world a chance to own a piece of the man that made the art movement of the early 80s New York City so electric. The blowout event featured performances from hip hop royalty.

Fat Joe first took the stage to perform and welcomed Stevenson A. Dunn, Jr. from The Bishop Gallery to introduce the first ever seen NFT drop, which included four rare photos of Basquiat. Next, Busta Rhymes came out to perform and lastly, French Montana performed a set while DJ D-Nice spun the entire night.

Next up after Art Basel, Triller x The Bishop Gallery in partnership with NYX Professional Makeup will present the “Our Friend, Jean-HBCU Tour,” and exhibition that will embark on a tour to eight HBCU (Historically Black Colleges/Universities) schools. The tour will kick off in early 2022 and land in eight cities, where Adler will appear to share the works from the Alexis Adler Archive, featuring works from Basquiat and potential art donations to the schools. Together, Triller, Bishop Gallery, and NYX Pm, have artistry for all that has been at the core, and strive to bring accessibility to the arts and self-expression to younger generations.

Alain Delorme Presents Exhibition Murmuration

The photographic work of Alain Delorme is particularly concerned with depicting the phenomena of normalization and standardization conveyed by our consumer society. The artist delivers photographs in graphic and colorful worlds oscillating between realism and fiction.
A distant rustle, puffs of air : a swarm forms and rises in the breeze, drawing elegant arabesques in a sky full of shimmering reflections of light. At first, the works of Alain Delorme capture the magic of the first fleeting beauty of a flock of birds, a Murmuration. However, this initial charm soon vanishes when the viewer takes a closer look, notices the clever deception, and discovers what is really behind the graceful flocks, the sometimes aquatic, sometimes calligraphic shapes : thousands of plastic bags, meticulously arranged by the artist, their massive presence threatening to asphyxiate the horizon. This work is located at the crossroads between various visual cultures and diverse artistic heritage, primarily cinematic : Murmuration seems like an improbable blend of the sight of the plastic bag which inAmerican Beauty (1999) swirls around almost hypnotically, and the vision of The Birds in Hitchcock’s great classic from 1963. Both play with the reversal of perspective: the Master of Fear builds his plot on the inexplicable aggression of actually harmless animals, while the scene captured by the amateur filmmaker seems to unveil the beauty and delicacy of an otherwise ungainly object.
This exhibit will take place January 26 to March 16, 2018 at
Danysz Gallery 256 Beijing East Road x Jiangxi Road – Shanghai.
