The collection, hosted by Brooklyn's Bishop Gallery, will feature a range of work—including paintings, collages, and drawings—created by the artist between 1979 and 1981 in his good friend Lonny Lichtenberg's New York apartment. Curating the exhibition will be another of Basquiat's close friends, Al Diaz, who collaborated with the artist during his much-mythologized SAMO graffiti days. The show will run from November 30 to December 4, at Miami's Nobu Hotel.

This news follows an announcement last week that the Barbican Centre will host the first major Basquiat exhibition in the U.K. in September 2017.
