Versions of Chuck, Revisited (solo show)
Kunstmuseum Schloss Derneburg
21 October 2022 – 16 April 2023
On the occasion of the museum’s 15-year anniversary, eight monumental paintings by Julian Schnabel, first included in the Hall Art Foundation’s inaugural show at Schloss Derneburg in 2007, are on view until 16 April 2023. The subject of the paintings is a figure called Chuck – a surfer friend of the artist. Each painting depicts Chuck in various poses, centrally positioned within the canvas. While Chuck’s body is rendered in brushy and abstracted red marks, his head and facial features are precisely drawn, topped with a crown of yellow, blond hair and surrounded by a blue orb. Recalling Christian icons, Chuck takes on the appearance of an angel or saint. The artist, who began surfing as a teen, describes the act of surfing as the only physical activity that comes close to the sublime feeling of painting.

Energetic Gestures (group show)
20 October – 6 November 2022
Works by Albert Oehlen and Julian Schnabel are included in the group exhibition Energetic Gestures, on view at the Kunstsaele Berlin from 20 October until 6 November 2022. Curated by Philipp Bollmann, the show examines the concept and significance of ‘power’ in art. Here, we encounter works whose creative use of powerful gestures often transcends the category of stylistic element and becomes the content itself.
