Dilexi Gallery and Foundation 1958-1972
The Dilexi gallery was one of California's most notable galleries, however, its published history has thus far included a wide expanse of errata. The Dilexi research project established a corrected timeline of its gallery shows, organized a database of all its artists, documented little-known and unpublished projects, created a photographic database and contextualized the gallery's role as a bridge for California art to seek new horizons. The research which was begun in 2014 saw Narin Dickerson join as a fellow researcher in 2018. Dickerson became the research director with Laura Whitcomb, and the project became a well-reviewed multi-venue exhibition and a 2021 publication.
