Hot Art: Schnabel’s Double Exposure

Julian Schnabel's Resurrection: Albert Finney Meets Malcolm Lowry

ON NOW Celebrity is the fitting focus this month at the Art Gallery Ontario, which debuts a major retrospective of works by contemporary art star and award-winning director Julian Schnabel. Simply and appropriately entitled Julian Schnabel: Art and Film, the exhibition assembles more than two-dozen works by the New York-based iconoclast, including several of his early plate paintings and various pieces inspired by cinematic figures—Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken and Albert Finney among them. Schnabel’s acclaimed cinematic efforts, such as The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, are also screening throughout the show’s run, offering further evidence of his fruitful comingling of visual art and the equally visual medium of film.
