    L.A. Style: Printmaking at Gemini G.E.L., 1966-1976

    The revolution in American printmaking, begun in the late 1950s with the founding of professional print shops, reached a new apex of productivity and innovation in the 1960s and 1970s. Founded in Los Angeles in 1966, Gemini G.E.L. (Graphic Editions Limited) was at the forefront of artistic and technical innovation during this vital time in American printmaking. Featuring 50 prints and multiples by the ground-breaking artists of the day including David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Ken Price, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Ed Ruscha, among others, "L.A. Style" will also celebrate the bequest of Irene Mennen Hunter, class of 1939, of 70 works editioned and published by Gemini G.E.L. during the late 1960s and early 1970s. This exhibition is supported by the Louise Walker Blaney, class of 1939, Fund for Exhibitions.
