On April 29, 1979, performance artist Michael Holman and painter Jean-Michel Basquiat created the revolutionary sound/music/noise group Gray. Gray’s music can be heard on film soundtracks such as: Basquiat, The Radiant Child, Downtown 81, Blank City, and Downtown Calling. Since re-uniting in 2010, Gray has performed live for select performances including the New Museum (2011), the Corcoran Gallery of Art (2012) the Parrish Museum (Watermill, November, 2012), and with Questlove at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (2012).

Today, original Gray member Nick Taylor and Holman make up the band. Other members of Gray have included Vincent Gallo, Justin Thyme (aka Wayne Clifford), and Shannon Dawson. Hear Gray in a rare performance with Deantoni Parks. Presented in conjunction with “Writing the Future: Basquiat and the Hip-Hop Generation.”
