Sunday morning at the Triennale, a big echoing marble hall with monumental staircase and neon work by Maurizio Nannucci.

The occasion is the Basquiat Show, charmingly publicized with the hair-raising slogan “The dark side of art”… run that by me again?

The texts all came from paintings by Jean-Michel B. His words make excellent poems/lyrics. They’re like a meeting point of sound, thought and graphic representation. And they tell the story of the artworks much better than artcritics.

Tenor Pablo Karaman courageously led the chorus without a mike, one big voice vs. many.

The audience was seated on the monumental staircase, which looks great with the light angling in through the cracks.

Massimo Falascone did a sax cameo. The voices and sax reached the audience’s ears from above. The singers moved on the choral parts to shift the echoes through the space.
