Art- 'Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child '

" This is a song for the genius child
Sing it softly, for the song is wild,
Sing it softly as ever you can_
Lest the song get out of hand
Nobody loves a genius child
Can you love an eagle,
Tame or Wild?
Can you love an eagle,
Wild or Tame?
Can you love a monster
Of frightening name?
Nobody loves a genius child
Kill him_ and let his soul run wild"

Genius Child by Langston Hughes

The documentary "The Radiant Child", released in 2010 is centered on a rare interview that director and friend Tamra Davis shot with Basquiat over twenty years ago. This definitive film chronicles the meteoric rise and fall of the young artist.
