Press Releases Walker Art Center Presents Julian Schnabel: Artist Director Regis Dialogue and Film Retrospective March 4-19

“The term ‘larger than life’ seems almost too meager for the force of nature that is Julian Schnabel: artist, surfer, bon vivant, and now acclaimed filmmaker.” —Art Newspaper

The Walker Art Center presents Julian Schnabel: Artist Director, a Regis Dialogue and Film Retrospective, March 4-19. With the soon-to-be-released Miral (screening at the Walker March 18), Schnabel has broken his own mold by fashioning an epic with historical and political ramifications, though he still encases it in his trademark personal story. “Miral is imbued with the exquisite camera and sound work he’s become known for, but the portraiture is more precise than expressionist, matching an emotional arc with a political one” (Toronto International Film Festival). In 2010 Schnabel was awarded the Douglas Sirk Award at the Hamburg Film Festival—a tribute to a personality for his or her outstanding merit in film culture—for which they called him “one of the most versatile artists of his generation. The diversity of his talent is exciting and inspires artists of every genre.” Schnabel will appear at the Walker to converse about his work with chief curator Darsie Alexander in a Regis Dialogue (Saturday, March 19).
