New Dimensions: Prints and Multiples from the Anderson Collection

January 28, 2012July 1, 2012

The original objective of Los Angeles–based print workshop Gemini G.E.L. was to print and publish prints. During its first decade, however, collaborations with visiting Pop artists such as Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg spurred the workshop into dimensions previously unexplored. In fact, it was Oldenburg’s ideas for Profile Airflow (1969), a color lithograph encased in molded plastic, that encouraged Gemini to expand its publishing parameters to include small-scale, editioned sculptures called multiples.
