Max Hetzler Goethestraße 2/3

Julian Schnabel

17. September – 30. Oktober 2021

Galerie Max Hetzler is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Julian Schnabel at Goethestraße 2/3, in Berlin. This is the artist’s first solo presentation with the gallery.

Since the late 1970s, Julian Schnabel has sought to transform the possibilities of painting, through the use of unconventional materials, chance-based processes, large formats, gestures and charged pictorial grounds. His works marked a departure from painting as conventionally understood and were pivotal in the reemergence of painting in the United States, with his influence still visible today.

Featuring eleven new works, all painted with a large Japanese calligraphy brush, in a visceral red ink, the exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler sees the artist experimenting with liquids, how things dry, and the power of the artist’s mark—how images come out of other things: ‘There’s always been this investigation’, he explains, ‘into how the paint sits on the surface and how to get a certain kind of painted reality to coexist with another one.’
