Café Dolly: Picabia, Schnabel, Willumsen
October 12, 2014 - February 1, 2015
Includes studio participation in the Museum's AutoNation Academy of Art + Design and discussion with Julian Schnabel on his work in the museum's exhibition Cafe Dolly: Picabia, Schnabel, Willumsen.
Bringing together the work of French artist Francis Picabia (1879–1953), American artist Julian Schnabel (b. 1951), and Danish artist Jens Ferdinand Willumsen (1863–1958) for the first time in the United States, the exhibition Café Dolly: Picabia, Schnabel, Willumsen will be on view at NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale from October 12, 2014 - February 1, 2015. The illuminating exhibition reveals surprising connections between stylistic and painterly concerns that span generations and geography.
Featuring approximately 75 paintings, Café Dolly presents works dating from 1926–1951 by French artist Picabia, whose contributions to the avant-garde Dada and Surrealist movements are widely known, but whose paintings from his later figurative period remain relatively obscure in the United States. The exhibition also includes paintings from the late 1980s to the present by New York artist Julian Schnabel, including works on a collaged surface of broken plates, resin-coated figurative paintings, enormous canvases based on paintings found in thrift stores, and paintings that conflate figuration and abstraction. In addition, the exhibition includes paintings from the late 19th- to mid-20th century by visionary Danish artist J. F. Willumsen.
Along with critically acclaimed art exhibitions, NSU Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale presents an exciting schedule of events including: lectures, art workshops, art classes for children and adults, family activities, concerts and performances, and more! During your visit, enjoy the delightful Museum Café and bookstore, with free WiFi available.
