The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L.

September 11, 2016 - January 2, 2017

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Since 1966, the renowned Los Angeles print workshop Gemini G.E.L. has been a vital and innovative force in fine-art printmaking, publishing the work of internationally celebrated artists.

For centuries, artists have produced series to develop thematic, narrative, literary, and formal imagery in a sequential manner. This practice was especially prevalent in the 1960s as conceptual, minimalist, and pop artists adopted the serial format to explore the potential of systems and structures related to such notions as rational order and mass production. Artists at Gemini G.E.L. have continued to engage a variety of approaches to serial production, resulting in some of the workshop’s most significant publications. The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. presents a selection of these notable projects, many of which have rarely been displayed in their entirety.

LACMA premiered Gemini’s very first edition—a series of prints by Josef Albers—and has since collected and exhibited their editions. On the occasion of Gemini’s 50th anniversary, The Serial Impulse showcases 15 print series, from seminal works by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella to more recent series by Richard Serra and Julie Mehretu.

Alternative Dreams: 17th-Century Chinese Paintings from the Tsao Family Collection

September 16 - December 4, 2016

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Showcasing one of the finest collections of 17th-century Chinese paintings in the United States, Alternative Dreams: 17th-Century Chinese Paintings from the Tsao Family Collection presents works by many of the most famous painters of this period, including scholars, officials, and Buddhist monks.

The 17th century witnessed the fall of the Chinese-ruled Ming dynasty (1368–1644) and the founding of the Manchu-ruled Qing dynasty (1644–1911). It was one of the most turbulent and creative eras in the history of Chinese art. Composed of 130 paintings, the exhibition explores the ways artists of the late Ming and early Qing dynasties used painting, calligraphy, and poetry to create new identities as means of negotiating the social disruptions that accompanied the fall of the Ming dynasty.

Formed over a period of fifty years by Bay Area collector and dealer Jung Ying Tsao, the collection includes works by Dong Qichang (1555–1636), considered the most versatile Chinese artist of the last five hundred years, and major, previously unpublished works by Gong Xian, Fu Shan, Hongren, Bada shanren, Daoji, Wang Hui, and Wang Yuanqi.

This exhibition is included in General Admission.

Discoveries – Photographs by Bob Primes

September 8 - October 4, 2016, 6:00 PM - 12:00 AM ONGOING EVENT

The Perfect Exposure Gallery, 3519 West 6th Street, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email |

Discoveries is a collection of 45 photographs that I hope you will find thought provoking and a bit unusual. Although both the subject matter and visual style are varied, I’ve often attempted to evoke the texture and mystery of impressionist painting, .

Those of you with irrepressible curiosity may peek at the Discoveries project on my website, robertprimes.com although those images have neither the detail nor the impact of the large gallery prints.

Bob Primes took some amazing pictures of Big Sunday volunteers during A Month of Big Sundays this past spring.

Chapters: Book Arts in Southern California

January 29 - May 7, 2017 ONGOING EVENT

Craft & Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

Although Los Angeles/Southern California is often overshadowed by New York and San Francisco as a books arts center in the United States, the region has a long history of innovation in the medium. This exhibition will explore the development of book arts in Southern California starting in the 1960-70s to today. The exhibition will investigate the range of works that can be defined as “book arts” with an emphasis on innovative formats, hand-made works, and small editions. Additionally, an onsite bookmaking shop will be activated with demos and workshops by exhibition artists, area book arts instructors, and local students.

Craft & Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

Curated by independent curator jill moniz.

 

Artists: Fred Eversley, Lisa Bartleson, Dana Bean, Mads Christensen, Susan Feldman, Miguel Osuna, Cola Smith, Gerard Stripling, and Valentin Toledo.

The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility

September 10, 2017 - January 7, 2018 ONGOING EVENT

Craft & Folk Art Museum, 5814 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323.937.4230

Since the 1990s, the US-Mexico border has become an important site for creative exploration of issues related to emigration, immigration, labor conditions, hybrid identities, and transformation. The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility presents the work of contemporary artists who explore the border as a physical reality (place), as a subject (imagination), and as a site for production and solution (possibility). The inclusion of artists from various disciplines, including design, architecture, sculpture, painting, and photography, reflects the ways in which contemporary artists and designers themselves cross disciplinary borders. Many of the artists featured in the exhibition pursue a creative problem-solving process sometimes described as “design thinking,” which involves invention, social engagement, and the task of making. The exhibition will include work by artists and designers such as Teddy Cruz, Adrian Esparza, Consuelo Jimenez Underwood, and Ana Serrano.
