First Came a Friendship: Sidney B. Felsen and the Artists at Gemini G.E.L.
February 20, 2024–July 7, 2024

The photographs of Sidney B. Felsen (b. 1924) eloquently document the remarkable history of Gemini G.E.L, the Los Angeles artist's workshop and publisher of limited-edition prints and sculpture, founded in 1966. They capture with great empathy the joy and demands of the creative process, record the many close friendships fostered with artists who collaborated at Gemini, and bear witness to the evolving Los Angeles art scene.

Sensing the Future: Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.)
September 10, 2024–February 23, 2025

This exhibition tells the story of a mid-20th century collaboration between artists and engineers to form the group Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). E.A.T.'s events integrated art, theater, multi-sensory environments, and groundbreaking technology. The group's pioneering efforts to facilitate communication and collaboration pushed its programs beyond the art world, laying the path for new technological innovations.
