Vito Schnabel Gallery announced a unique collaboration with New York-based Italian and American artist, Francesco Clemente, presenting a pair of parallel solo exhibition in the United States and Switzerland. Debuting new paintings and frescoes, both shows will present boldly expressive, large-scale works that comprise a meditation upon the restless physical and spiritual journey that has shaped the course of the artist’s acclaimed four-decade career. Francesco Clemente: Indiawill be on view at Vito Schnabel Projects, New York, from November 8, 2019 through January 17, 2020. Francesco Clemente: Clouds will be on view at Vito Schnabel Gallery, St. Moritz, from December 27, 2019 through February 2, 2020.
Vito Schnabel Projects will open its doors to Gus Van Sant: Recent Paintings, Hollywood Boulevard, an exhibition of new works by Los Angeles-based artist and auteur, Gus Van Sant (b. 1952, Louisville, Kentucky). On view will be a series of large-scale watercolors on stretched linen that collapse dreamlike impressions of urban Los Angeles with special narratives inspired by the people and events Van Sant has observed since establishing his home in the city in the 1970s. Recent Paintings: Hollywood Boulevard is Van Sant’s first solo paintings exhibition in New York.
Threads: Paintings from the 1960s and 70s features a selection of the work of artist, Stephen Posen, never before publicly shown. This exhibition, presented by Vito Schnabel Projects, is the first significant presentation to revisit Posen’s “breakthrough shaped canvases and related paintings since his debut” at SoHo gallery OK Harris, and Robert Miller, nearly five decades ago.
