Julian Schnabel Plate Paintings 1978–86

Exhibition Website

Nov 4 2016 - Feb 19 2017

Julian Schnabel’s Aspen Art Museum exhibition is the first museum presentation to focus on the renowned American artist’s now culturally iconic plate paintings. Largely unexhibited since the early 1980s, Schnabel’s pieces reveal the artist’s interest in material experimentation, the physicality of surface, and the relationship between the figure and abstraction. His AAM show includes a concise survey of these works—from the artist’s first plate painting, The Patients and the Doctors (1978), through to The Walk Home (1985).
