GEMINI G.E.L. AT JONI MOISANT WEYL was established in 1984 as the New York gallery exhibiting and representing the publications of the Los Angeles-based artists’ workshop, Gemini G.E.L. The gallery shows new editions as they are published, and has mounted many historical survey exhibitions, including “A Tribute to Robert Rauschenberg: Prints and Objects”; “The Private Eye of Philip Guston: The Gemini Editions”; “Ellsworth Kelly: Diagonals and Panels 1970-1990”; “Claes Oldenburg: Editions in Two and Three Dimensions 1969-1995”; “Ken Price: Prints and Ceramics 1970-2005”; “Frank Stella: Prints from the 1960s & 70s”; “The Venetians: Selections from Five Decades of Gemini G.E.L. Biennale Artists”; and “Robert Rauschenberg: Hoarfrost Editions 1974.”
The gallery began in a by-appointment loft space on Crosby Street, followed by a relocation to West Broadway in the heart of Soho during the years 1990 to 2000. In January 2007, after six years in midtown, the gallery moved to 980 Madison, where it remained until July 2011. The relocation to 24th street in Chelsea has allowed for a continuation of the gallery program on a grander scale. The gallery continues to organize special events in conjunction with its exhibitions, including book-signings, “Q & A”‘s with the artist and Gemini printers, as well as private docent-led tours through related museum retrospectives. The gallery also participates in a number of local and international art fairs throughout the year and has been a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) for over 25 years.
Gemini G.E.L began in 1966 as an artists’ workshop and publisher of hand-printed limited edition lithographs. Responding to the expanding interests of its artists, work began on its first sculpture edition in 1968 with Claes Oldenburg’s Profile Airflow, and in 1970, Frank Stella’s Pastel Stack was started as the first project in the screenprinting workshop. The etching workshop opened in 1977 and woodcuts were being made by 1980. Since 1966, Gemini has collaborated on major bodies of work with many of Contemporary Art’s most accomplished painters and sculptors.
