10/13/2017 - Centuries of Opulence: Jewels of India
Features 50 gemstone jewelry pieces on loan from a private collection that have rarely been seen in public. Showcasing more than 300 years of adornment in India, the exhibit explores the original sources of the diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and other gems decorating these pieces, their religious and cultural symbolism, the wars fought for them, and the historical tradition of gemology in India.

The exhibit opens in conjunction with GIA's annual Jewelry Career Fair on Friday, October 13 -- the one day each year when the public can visit Gemological Institute of America's world headquarters without a prior appointment.

09/25/2017 - Lecture: Old New Media Xerox Art in Brazil
The beginning of the 1980s was for many in Brazil the start of an ongoing phase of experimentation with non-traditional media, especially involving image reproduction. Artists like Ramiro concentrated on using photocopiers to explore the possibilities of creating works without an "original" - each copy becoming a master for other copies, and so on. The artistic use of photocopiers, which stressed reproduction ad infinitum, was generally called Copy Art in the USA, Electrographie in France and Electrografia in Spain. In Brazil, it became known as Xerox Art, in spite of the fact that machines of different brands were regularly employed in the production of the work. In addition to the exploration of multiples in Xerox Art, other aspects were also important to Ramiro, such as its social potential in that prices could be more accessible to the average buyer. Formally, Xerox Art is characterized by its wide range of graphic resources and by the creation of sequential structures that tend to organize themselves in time and space. This is due in part to its speed and low production cost, which favor the creation of large numbers of images.

09/02/2017 - Young Geun Lee: Opening Reception
Referencing traditional Korean folk art, artist Young Geun Lee's work expresses the fundamental joys, sorrows, and demands of Korean commoners in the past. Emblematic and humorous images convey the success of family, the harmony of yin and yang, the wish for longevity without diseases, and the fair distribution of wealth, using symbols to fit into modern forms of expression as well as the colors blue, red, brown, white, and black, colors which in Eastern countries are seen as creating order in the universe. Lee draws on his culture, country, and life experience to create a beautiful garden of fundamental things. Join us to celebrate the opening of a three-month exhibit.

07/21/2017 - Exhibition: Jorge Pardo
Lux Art Institute is proud to announce critically acclaimed Cuban artist Jorge Pardo as its final artist-in-residence of Season 10. See first rate art in San Diego-be part of the Lux Experience.

Jorge Pardo's visually alluring work examines the crossing of contemporary painting, design, sculpture and architecture. Using a broad palette of exuberant colors, multifarious patterns and a mix of organic and industrial materials, Pardo's works range from murals to home furnishings to collages to larger-than-life fabrications.

Nestled in the northern Yucatán jungle, Pardo combined Mayan culture and modern design, where a sprawling series of buildings, structures, pools and gardens subsumed his life for over six years. Constantly challenging defined aesthetic disciplines and ambits, Pardo engages viewers throughout the world with works consistently questioning distinctions between fine art and design.
