FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Artist and director Julian Schnabel is speaking about his work currently on view at Nova Southeastern University’s Museum of Art-Fort Lauderdale.

Schnabel is giving a public talk Sunday with museum director Bonnie Clearwater. The exhibit “Cafe Dolly: Picabia, Schnabel, Willumsen” will be on view through Feb. 1.

Schnabel’s paintings will be on view with works by French artist Francis Picabia and by J.F. Willumsen of Denmark. Clearwater says the three contemporary artists have challenged the traditions of figurative painting in an era dominated by abstract art.

New York City-based Schnabel is considered one of the main artists whose work contributed to the resurgence of painting on the international art scene since the late 1970s. He also directed the films “Basquiat,” ”Before Night Falls” and “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.”
