Julian Schnabel: Art and Film

Introduction by David Moos. Afterword by Julian Schnabel.

Julian Schnabel, reproduced from <a href="9781894243667.html">Julian Schnabel: Art and Film</a>.American art megastar Julian Schnabel (born 1951) has made a métier of both painting and film, and while he is equally acclaimed for his achievements in each of these disciplines, the works have often been kept separate in the public eye. Yet Schnabel’s painting has drawn on cinematic imagery for years, often connecting otherwise disparate work via this theme, and his award-winning films have drawn on art both formally and as subject matter—most famously in the 1996 hit Basquiat. Schnabel himself resists categorization: “I make art,” he says,“whether it is painting, writing, photography or making a movie.” This survey of Schnabel’s career to date presents the artist’s painterly production, from the 1970s through to the present, juxtaposing his large-scale paintings with his numerous critically acclaimed movies—Basquiat (1996), Before Night Falls (2000), The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007) and his newest film Miral, which addresses the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The complete scripts of each of these movies are featured, punctuated with stills chosen by Schnabel. Published for the Art Gallery of Ontario’s 2010 survey, Julian Schnabel: Art and Film is the first appraisal of how Schnabel works across media, bridging painting, writing and cinema.
Julian Schnabel was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. His first solo show was at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston in 1976, but it was with his 1979 exhibition at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York that Schnabel first asserted his presence as a figurehead for new possibilities in painting. Retrospectives of his work have been mounted by Tate Gallery, London (1983), the Whitney Museum of American Art (1987) and Museo Nacionale Centro de Arte Reina Sophia, Madrid (2004), among many others. He made his cinematic debut in 1996 with his account of the life of Jean-Michel Basquiat, which starred Jeffrey Wright, David Bowie, Gary Oldman and Dennis Hopper. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly earned him Best Director both at the Cannes Film Festival and the Golden Globes, and an Academy Award nomination in this same category.

FROM THE BOOK
"In painting you take everything you know and don't know and posit that in the work. It has to be the same in filmmaking. The process has to be elastic, malleable, a work of discovery. People say to me, 'How did you do that? How do you know what that's like?' Doctors and neurologists asked me that about The Diving Bell. People who are paralyzed asked me that. But why would I be qualified to engage in any of that to make this movie. Because I know about claustrophobia and fear; I have it. I think the problem with filmmaking in general is people are making movies about stuff they don't know anything about. They don't know…the tools that they are using. They might have techniques, but it not necessarily going to help them to find the soul. Even an important treatment, if it's told in a boring way, it becomes meaningless. In 1981 I made a painting called Oar for the one who comes out to know fear. Overriding factor: transcendence, catharsis, you have to come out to know fear."

Julian Schnabel, in conversation with David Moos, excerpted from Julian Schnabel: Art and Film.
