Julian Schnabel: Aktion Paintings 1985-2017
12 October – 3 March 2019
ARoS is presenting the largest Julian Schnabel-exhibition to date in the Scandinavian countries. Many of the artworks are from Schnabel’s own collection and have never been exhibited publicly. Julian Schnabel is seen as one of the leading protagonists of painting in the last half of the 20th century and still influences painting today. (via ArtDaily.org)
The exhibition AKTION PAINTINGS presents a wide selection of works created by American painter Julian Schnabel between 1985 and 2017.
Disregarding chronological order, the paintings are arranged in accordance with recurring themes that have occupied Schnabel’s work over the last 40 years. The exhibition was created in close collaboration with the artist, who has greatly influenced the format of the show, creating a new and different kind of presentation that startles even as it captures his intense creative energy.
