NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle is pleased to announce a new auction focused on the art and artists of New York in the 1980s. Scheduled for Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 11am, the '80s NYC auction will showcase paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints, multiples, photography and ephemera by such artists as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, Kenny Scharf, Martin Wong and many others.
New York City of the 1980s was ground zero for several new artistic movements that revitalized the city and marked a new period in Contemporary arts and culture. From the countless new galleries springing up in Soho, to the music and performances taking place at CBGB’s, Max’s Kansas City, the Mudd Club and more, as well as the political stances of groups like the Guerrilla Girls and Act Up, New York in the 1980s saw new art blossoming throughout the city. Auctions at Doyle regularly drew artists-as-collectors, ranging from Pop superstar Andy Warhol to a then-unknown Martin Wong.
Collectives like Colab Projects were using alternative spaces to launch innovative new exhibitions, while Graffiti art was simultaneously showing not only in the subways, but also in new spaces like Fun Gallery and venerated galleries like Sidney Janis. Publications like the Village Voice and the East Village Eye documented the evolving intersection of New Wave, No Wave, Punk Rock, Rap and Hip Hop, independent film and performance art, as well as a cacophony of art movements such as Neo-Expressionism, Pop Art, Pictures Generation, Minimalism and more.
The October 11 auction will also present Prints & Multiples. Read More
