“Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself, (I am large, I contain multitudes.)”
–Walt Whitman, Song of Myself, 1855
"I am as bad as the worst, but, thank God, I am as good as the best."
–Walt Whitman, Preface to Leaves of Grass, 1855
Almine Rech gallery is pleased to present Re-Reading, featuring recent works by Julian Schnabel. The title of the exhibition, Re-Reading refers to works on paper; reproduced found images on cardboard, reproductions of wallpaper that have been recycled and reenlisted serving as a palimpsest and ground for a stasis where anything can occur; two chairs, and spray painted Plexiglas works that cover found enlarged photos from a book on Ernest Hemingway’s house in Cuba.
