Influential artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who died at the age of twenty-seven in 1988, would have turned fifty-five this December 22, so MoMA is using that as the inspiration behind its November 10 event, “Wikipedia Edit-a-thon: Basquiat Still Fly @55.” On Tuesday night at 6:00, everyone is invited to bring their own laptops and power cords and help update Wikipedia articles on Basquiat and other black artists, focusing on “the multicultural and gender gaps in Wikipedia.” No art, editing, writing, or HTML experience or knowledge is required, and light refreshments will be served. Advance RSVP is required here.
