Press release

The exhibition ‘Aktion Paintings’ presents a wide selection of works created by American painter Julian Schnabel between 1985 and 2017. Disregarding chronological order, the paintings are arranged in accordance with recurring themes that have occupied Schnabel’s work over the last 40 years. The exhibition was created in close collaboration with the artist, who has greatly influenced the format of the show, creating a new and different kind of presentation that startles even as it captures his intense creative energy.
