Vogue highlights work by Gemini collaborating artists Cecily Brown, Ellsworth Kelly and Julie Mehretu among this spring’s notable New York gallery exhibitions.
The Gemini team enjoyed an exciting week with Richard Serra in town for the opening of his new drawings at Gagosian Gallery. He spent a lot of time at Gemini signing prints and starting new ones. Here is a photo re-cap of his visit.

JOEL SHAPIRO AT GEMINI
Up Down Around, 2011
Gemini G.E.L. is pleased to present Joel Shapiro: Up Down Around, on view through February 22, 2013. Following his first collaboration with Gemini in 2009, the artist has created a series of five colorful prints that move between figuration and abstraction. Like his sculptures, the geometric shapes in his print work take on a rich dimensionality that hint at the movement of the human form. The precise and delicate placement of the forms gives the bold, razor-sharp shapes a buoyant and transitive appearance, as though they are capable of floating into another configuration. Closer inspection reveals that the artist has softened the edges with deliberate smudges, a technique often employed in his drawings.
Soon after finishing his graduate work at New York University, Shapiro earned critical acclaim for his small-scale works that had an implied human presence, such as sculptures of houses and chairs. Shapiro is best known for his large-scale geometric sculptures that resemble the human form but remain rooted in abstraction. In addition to being included in many major museum collections, Shapiro has worked on numerous public commissions and projects, including a project for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.

Gemini G.E.L. congratulates Ann Hamilton
on the success of her current installation at the Park Avenue Armory (New York):
Ann Hamilton is best known for her use of objects, textiles, video, photography, and sound to create the material framework for her spatial installations and performances. Her latest installation, commissioned by the Armory, invites viewers to participate in a complex network of swings and pulleys to animate a billowing expanse of silk fabric, suspended across the center of the building. The gleeful expressions by those traversing the space, along with a chorus of other sounds orchestrated by the artist permeate the atmosphere. Collectively, Hamilton conducts a visceral experience that projects her fundamental focus on “the way we experience ourselves, not as images but as bodies.”
If you will be in the New York area between now and January 6th, we encourage you to experience this installation. Click here for visiting information. If you would like to see available works by Ann Hamilton in Los Angeles or New York, please contact us at 1.323.651.0513 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ann Hamilton was born in Lima, Ohio in 1956. Hamilton received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture from Yale University School of Art in 1985. She has received a MacArthur Fellowship, Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, United States Artists Fellowship, the Heinz Award, and was chosen to represent the United States at the 1991 Sao Paulo Bienal and the 1999 Venice Biennale. In 1992, she established her home and practice in Columbus, Ohio. She is currently a Distinguished University Professor of Art at The Ohio State University.
