SABATO, EL VEINTIUNO DE AGOSTO, VEINTE-DIEZ
The new City Centre casino has plenty of art around the building, also you can get a guide from Centerpiece Gallery just down by the Mandarin Oriental, to the south of City Centre.
By the Elvis Theatre is a huge painting by Julian Schnabel, titled Zeus, 1992. Because of it's size, there aren't too many places to put it so it's a bit cramped where it is, but great to see, nonetheless. Also in the collection is a large canoe sculpture by Nancy Graves, a fantastic Frank Stella mid sixties geometric shaped canvas in at the reservatino desk and three Tony Cragg sculptures in the atrium.

Recently I have been thinking "I really want to see a Schnabel" because they look puny on the net and in books. the closest to me is Canberra.

Thanks for this picture - it gives the work some scale :-)

did you not get to see the Schnabel painting that was in Exhibition of the Century at City Gallery? It wasn't as big as this but definitely the same period. Was good to see the work that had an affect on J. Harris, Daspher and Dale Frank.

No I missed that (not sure why now). I've just been writing about the neo expressionists in an essay for a Harris catalogue (works from 1980-81) which got me thinking about Schnabel and others
