Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life

Legion of Honor

Schnabel's first exhibition at a West Coast institution in over 30 years will feature new, monumental paintings occupying the Legion of Honor's open-air courtyard. Inside, the museum's neo-classical galleries will play host to paintings from the past three decades rarely seen before by the public. The exhibition is part of the Fine Arts Museums' newly formed contemporary art program, which creates dialogues between living artists and the unique buildings, locations and collections of the de Young and Legion of Honor.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Julian Schnabel: Symbols of Actual Life :

Art world giant Julian Schnabel has been commissioned to create a new body of larger-than-life paintings for the Legion’s Court of Honor; it is work designed for impermanence outdoors and is not expected to last. Eleven paintings from three other series are featured in the climate-controlled galleries, including a new series of abstractions.
