Dialogues Across Time: From Dürer to the Artists of Gemini G.E.L.

Artists both document and produce history. They simultaneously exist in its stream while forging their own artistic pathways. Printed images have always been a source of historical knowledge for artists, and printmaking in turn, is a means of making their own histories visible to us now.

This exhibition presents a selection of prints old and new that allow us to see their historical connections and entanglements by exploring themes that have been fundamental to artistic expression for centuries. While Dorothea Rockburne makes the association explicit by titling a lithograph, Melencolia, after one of Dürer’s most celebrated engravings, other artists are less conscious of them, and perhaps indifferent to the history that underlies their work. Nonetheless, that history oftentimes emerges – intuitively, conceptually, and visually.
