Alfredo Boulton: Looking at Venezuela (1928–1978)
August 29, 2023–January 7, 2024

Alfredo Boulton was one of the most important intellectuals of the 20th century in Latin America and a seminal photographer of the modern period. Through his body of work, Boulton generated a new cultural definition of Venezuela. This exhibition explores Boulton's photography, his relationships with modern artists, and his influence on the formalization of art history in his country.

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.
