Arakawa and Madeline Gins
March 30–June 16, 2018
Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, Columbia University, New York
In the early 1960s Arakawa and Madeline Gins began a prolific collaboration that spanned nearly five decades and encompassed painting, installations, poetry, literature, architecture, urbanism, philosophy, and scientific research. The exhibition will examine this pivotal exploratory period through an array of original drawings—many exhibited for the first time—as well as archival material and writings that illuminate the working methods and wide-ranging research interests of Arakawa and Gins.

Dwan Gallery, 1959–1971
March 19–September 10, 2017
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
This exhibition features modern and contemporary works from the personal collection of gallerist Virginia Dwan. The selection has been culled from Dwan’s promised gift to Washington, DC’s National Gallery of Art, which includes major works by American artists based on the East and West Coasts. The exhibition aims to illustrate Dwan’s creative spirit and her close association with Minimalism, conceptual art, and large-scale Earthworks. Included are artists Arakawa, Walter De Maria, Michael Heizer, and Yves Klein.
