Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life

April 19 - August 5, 2018 │ Legion of Honor Museum

Deutsche Bank is a major supporter of “Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life” at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco

“Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life” is the artist's first exhibition at a US West Coast institution in over 30 years. The exhibition will feature a new series of site-specific paintings created for the Legion's Court of Honor. At twenty-four by twenty-four feet each, the paintings are both monumental in scale and ephemeral in nature. Exposed to the elements over the four-month run of the exhibition, they aren’t meant to last. Since 1977, Julian Schnabel has captured people's imagination with paintings that speak to his incessant appetite for sculptural physicality, material diversity, and pictorial symbolism, which have resulted in ever more audaciously scaled paintings that oscillate between abstraction and figuration.
