Ann Hamilton at Gemini G.E.L.

A Survey of Works 2000-2012
December 14, 2012February 2, 2013

In the twelve years since discovering the collaborative possibilities to be found in the Los Angeles-based artists' workshop Gemini G.E.L., Ann Hamilton has created an impressively diverse body of prints and objects, and remains perhaps just as inquisitive about process as the day she arrived. On view atGemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl from December 14, 2012 through January 26, 2013 is a survey of Hamilton’s collaborations with Gemini to date.

Ann Hamilton first visited Gemini in 2000 to contribute to a portfolio celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. In approaching the task of translating her practice of sophisticated large-scale sensory installations to printmaking, she drew upon her training in textiles as well as her self-taught investigations of film, photography, video and audio. Never one to be predictable, the first image Hamilton resolved was an embossing titled written, containing no ink. While in the workshop, drawing on paper as well as stone, Hamilton observed the opportunities that working with the Master Printers offered her, and was more-than intrigued. With numerous ideas percolating, Hamilton resolved one additional embossing, and hoped to find use for that same plate, or others that were started, in future explorations.
