Located at Blum & Poe.
Blum & Poe is pleased to present forty years of painting by artist Julian Schnabel. This exhibition marks Schnabel’s first solo presentation with Blum & Poe.
After a hiatus from the West Coast art scene for nearly a decade, this first exhibition at Blum & Poe takes the form of a concise overview of an exhilaratingly divergent painting practice—making a forceful case for the historical importance of Schnabel’s oeuvre as well as his ever-growing relevance to a new generation of artists.
Twelve important paintings made between 1975 and 2015 will be displayed in the gallery’s ground floor. Together these paintings make manifest the scope and depth of Schnabel’s work—his groundbreaking material experimentation, his exceptional formal range and simultaneous mastery of both figurative and abstract idioms. Not only will this exhibition serve as an introduction to this artist’s legendary work for younger viewers, it positions Schnabel as one of the great auteurs of the postwar period.
