Julian Schnabel:  Art and Film, Art Gallery of Ontario, Ontario, Canada, 2010-2011

This exhibition at The Art Gallery of Ontario examined the connections between painting and film in Schnabel’s work, tracing how his paintings exist in dialogue with the cinema.  Film emerges as an organizing principle that constantly structures the narratives and pictorial range of his painting.  Julian Schnabel:  Art and Film surveys Schnabel’s work as a painter from the mid-1970s to the present and features more than 50 key works, each revealing how Schnabel’s abstract and figurative paintings, photographs and sculptures articulate his fascination with cinema.
