#TheArtInfluencer – #AnninaNosei. Annina Nosei is perhaps best known for being Jean-Michel Basquiat’s first art dealer, providing him with studio space in the basement of her gallery, along with materials for his first show there. That year, Nosei first saw Basquiat’s work at MoMA PS1 (@momaps1), in a groundbreaking group exhibition entitled “New York/New Wave”. Soon after the show, Basquiat invited her over to his then-girlfriend Suzanne Mallouk’s apartment, where he showed Nosei his work. She says, “There were mostly drawings, numerous drawings. Beautiful.” After they met for coffee, he wanted to join her gallery, but Nosei, ever practical, “told him that I really liked the work, but there were no paintings,” she says. Instead, she included him in a group show with Barbara Kruger and Jenny Holzer. Since he still needed works on canvas to display, she let him use the basement of the gallery as his studio.
From 1981 to 2005, Annina Nosei Gallery represented or exhibited work by artists like Barbara Kruger, Robert Longo, Ghada Amer, Shirin Neshat, and others. #ArtAboveReality #LosAngeles #LookWhatArtFound #ArtInspires #Inspiring #Global #Artistic #Expression #Creative #Art #LIFE #artwork #Curator #PhotoJournalism #PhotoJournalist #StreetPhotography #ArtJournalism #ArtPhotography #photoaday #photo #artist #museum #artlaw #artbusiness #artmanagement #arteconomics #Basquiat | text via @artsy and image by NoirGuides
