Vito started his first exhibition at a young age, having done this type of work since he was 16. Since then, he’s curated shows in locations all over the world, including Switzerland, Venice, and New York. His first exhibition featured artists who knew and visited his family, including Luigi Ontani, Herbie Fletcher and Lola Schnabel. Since then, he would gain significant recognition for revitalizing artist’s careers and showcasing exhibits in non-traditional spaces like offices, fields and gardens. Vito’s approach in showing the variations of all artists received great reviews from critics, and also showed his wide interest in art.

Vito continued to receive recognition for various publications like the Artforum, Interview Magazine and The New York Times, and has continued to arrange notable exhibitions such as a painting display entitled “Flowers For Baudelaire” which is from artist Terence Koh. Schnabel was also responsible for Sothebys first exhibition entitled “These Days”.

In 2013, Vito opened his own showroom in West Village, where he exhibits, hosts and works. During 2014, Vito did the last exhibition of the “Brucennial” which was showcased every two years and started during 2008 – the exhibition featured around 600 female artists. In 2015, he worked on a display for an exhibition of paintings by Ron Gorchov, and then organised a show at an historical site entitled “First Show/Last Show”, and featured works from Jeff Elrod, Marj Grotjahn and Harmony Korine.

For some of his latest work, Schnabel opened The Vito Schnabel Gallery in St. Moritz, the first permanent one in the area. The first exhibition at the location was “Bruno & Yoyo” by Urs Fischer. He then arranged an art installation entitled “STOVES” which was from artist Sterling Ruby – the installation remained in an offsite location until around March 2016. Since Vito’s rise in popularity, his net worth has steadily increased and he’s even curated more traditional shows, comparable to many larger institutions.

For his personal life, it is known that he has been dating model and host Heidi Klum since 2014. Interestingly, Vito has been linked to other actresses and celebrities who are much older than him, including Demi Moore and Elle Macpherson. According to Schnabel, many of the artworks and artists he chooses are due to a very personal taste. Most of the artists that he features are either people that come to him.
