Julian Schnabel & Jeff Koons

The visionary artists talk their creative process

Watch award–winning and wildly popular multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel in conversation with Jeff Koons, critically acclaimed and controversial artist, and Randy Kennedy, formerly of The New York Times.

The duo discussed their illustrious careers, creative processes and Schnabel’s exhibition “Julian Schnabel: New Plate Paintings,” inspired by the roses growing in the cemetery near Van Gogh’s grave in Auvers–sur–Oise, France. These works celebrate the artist’s first solo show since his return to the Pace gallery. Throughout his career, Schnabel has sustained his use of found materials and chance–based processes, transforming the conventions of painting and opening the door for a new generation of young artists.
