This book is published in conjunction with two solo exhibitions by Julian Schnabel held at Almine Rech Gallery between 2015 and 2017.
Re-Reading took place in New York from September 14, 2017 and Jack Climbed up the Beanstalk to the Sky of Illimitableness Where Everything Went Backwards was presented in Paris from October 19 to December 19, 2015.
‘Schnabel is an artist whose practice(s) transcend(s) all known genres or media: we all know about his dual interest in filmmaking and painting; not many, however know that he is also an interior designer, an engraver, a musician, and a furniture maker. Indeed, he is also a writer, and–the accurate word doesn’t exist in english–a reader. He is a ‘reader’ in a greater sense than the word conveys: one who is actively engaged and compelled, and himself compelling, one who turns reading into something more than a mere daily instrumental activity. Schnabel, in Flaubert’s sense, is a 'liseur'. At Almine Rech, Schnabel invites us to become liseurs ourselves throughout this visual and literary dialogue.’
