Celebration of the 50th anniversary of Gemini G.E.L.

Oct 5, 2015

In celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Gemini G.E.L., the Los Angeles-based artists’ print workshop where Rauschenberg produced more than two hundred and fifty editions over the course of thirty-five years, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation posted a new, illustrated oral history interview today with Sidney Felsen, Gemini’s cofounder and Rauschenberg’s longtime friend and collaborator.

Read the illustrated transcript and listen to an excerpt of the interview on the Rauschenberg Oral History Project page.

Gemini’s fiftieth anniversary is also marked by the opening of The Serial Impulse at Gemini G.E.L. on view at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, through February 6, 2016. The exhibition showcases seventeen print series created at Gemini over the past five decades by seventeen artists, including Rauschenberg’s Hoarfrost Edition (1974).
