In partnership with the Barbican Centre in London Video Jam will be commissioning one London based artist filmmaker to join six other artists based between New York and London on a unique project. Each artist will create an original moving image work, between 10 - 20 minutes in length, in response to Basquiat: Boom for Real, the first major UK retrospective of work by legendary artist Jean-Michel Basquiat which runs from 21 September 2017 - 28 January 2018 at the Barbican.

Artists may respond to this commission considering any aspect of Basquiat’s practice or influences as inspiration for their work. Upon completion, their film will be paired with a composer/band/sound artist to create an accompanying live score to form one dynamic audio-visual work. The piece will be presented and live scored as part of the exhibition’s official closing event organised by Video Jam at the Barbican Hall on Sunday January 28th 2018.
