Gemini G.E.L. At Joni Moisant Weyl is the premiere destination in New York City for original fine-art editioned prints. Established in 1984, the Chelsea-based gallery was founded to exhibit and represent prints from the Los Angeles-based artists' workshop, Gemini G.E.L. Today, Gemini G.E.L. At Joni Moisant Weyl serves as a cultural destination in New York City that pays homage to print’s evolution by showcasing new Gemini editions as they are published, as well as mounting 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 1960's & 70's; Julie Mehretu: A Decade of Printmaking at Gemini G.E.L.” and "The Venetians: Selections from Five Decades of Gemini G.E.L.

Master Printer Jill Lerner printing Tacita Dean's "LA Magic Hour 13"
Our 2022 Fine Art Print Fair presentation features a selection of recently published projects, including lithographs by Tacita Dean depicting the sunsets of Los Angeles, oil stick editions by Richard Serra, and a new body of work by Ann Hamilton with a focus on bird and mammal specimens from the Burke Museum of Natural History. Also on view is Toba Khedoori’s monumental etching "Untitled (grass)", which has a single chine collé on a 6 ½ foot tall print, the largest Gemini’s master printers have ever accomplished. We are also debuting two new bodies of work by Analia Saban titled "Circuit Boards" and "Transcending Grids", which reconfigure traditional notions of printmaking and explore the process and materiality of technology and its aesthetics. Frank Gehry has made a new lithograph representing the D-Day landing on France’s coastline, which has ties to the artist’s massive stainless-steel tapestry designed for the Dwight D. Eisenhower memorial in Washington, D.C. We will also feature a tribute to the acclaimed Pop artist Claes Oldenburg, honoring his witty and playfully creative legacy through four themes that have echoed throughout his career—soft screws, soft alphabets, the geometric mouse, and the ice bag.
