Since graduating, Armando has used his artistic platform to lead, educate and give back. Armando paints portraits to help tell stories, sometimes in his studio or on stages in front of thousands.
Basquiat Before Basquiat focuses on the artistic life of Jean-Michel Basquiat from 1979 to 1980, when he shared an apartment in the East Village with his friend, Alexis Adler. This period stands as an important transitional moment for the artist, as he migrated away from the street toward a studio practice, and anticipates his breakthrough works of 1981. Through paintings, sculpture, works on paper, a notebook, and other ephemera, as well as Adler’s numerous photographs from this period, this exhibition ultimately explores how the context of life in New York informed and formed Basquiat’s artistic practice.

When renowned New York City fashion and portrait photographer Richard Avedon (1923–2004) agreed in late 1978 to take on a commission from the Amon Carter to create a portrait of the American West through its people he went to the Rattlesnake Round-Up in Sweetwater, Texas. He created six evocative portraits that would set the tone and bar for five more years of photographing. He discovered people who conveyed through their faces, clothes, and postures, not merely hard living but the full embrace of existence. This selection of 17 of the project’s Texas images makes abundantly clear why In the American West has become a touchstone in photographic history.
