Also listed in New York Times' GTT section which lists "quirky, discerning picks for the most interesting things to do around the state," the anticipation for this dual opening of two iconic American painters is bursting at the seams.

Negation of the Universe is Richard Phillips' first and largest solo show in the United States. Expect to see his hyper-real paintings, motion portraits and, of course, his controversial, 40-foot sculpture.

Julian Schnabel's exhibit, An Artist Has a Past (Puffy Clouds and Strong Cocktails) 15 Paintings Over the Last Decade, will be the multi-talented contemporary artist's first show in Texas since the late '80s. 

The duo will also speak at the Dallas Contemporary on Saturday, April 12.
