Who says you can't get good money from a resume? Apparently, when he was just a lad of 20, Jean-Michel Basquiat, perhaps the most famous artist to cone out of the early 1980's Downtown NYC scene, made a resume that was such crap, so devoid of actual work experience, he got to throw a big fuck you at everyone for listing Warhol, Tennessee Williams, Glenn O'Brien, and Johnny Carson as his contacts. This resume just sold at Sotheby's for $50,000. Actually, come to think of it, this is probably the greatest resume ever. We are sold.

Yesterday we caught up with curator Aaron Rose and talked about his new video for MOCAtv, a project, which focuses on the late New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Made in collaboration with Los Angeles based musician Sam Spiegel (AKA DJ Squeak E Clean, one half of DJ duo N.A.S.A.), Aaron and Sam decided they would not pay direct homage to Basquiat and his work.

We are getting to that time of the summer, where London gets a sporting focus for a few weeks, much to the chagrin of locals who probably get enough tourism as it is. But the arts programs and curation at some of London's top private galleries and public institutions have been spot on all year, and Gagosian Gallery has got into spirit with Warhol and Basquiat's 1985 collaboration, Olympic Rings.

Back in 1979, photographer Henry Flynt extensively documented the graffiti work of SAMO, the young teenage Jean-Michel Basquiat. Flynt's photographs go beyond simply capturing the work, but gasp their energy and significance as poetic vandalism scrawled and integrated into the urban environment.
