Julian Schnabel: Plate Paintings 1978-89
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Julian Schnabel Plate Paintings 1978-89, on view November 2016 - February 2017 at the Aspen Art Museum.
Featuring essays by Rudi Fuchs and Heidi Zuckerman, as well as a selection of writings from CVJ: Nicknames of Maitre D's and Other Excerpts from Life.
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).
