Caltech presents EINSTEIN exhibit at LA Opera

The Einstein Papers Project at Caltech is proud to present three installations inside the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion during the performances of Einstein On The Beach.

The exhibitions will include an installation of twelve large portraits of Albert Einstein created by the noted photographer Herman Landshoff. Entitled “Albert Einstein At Home,” the photographs present intimate yet iconic images of Einstein during the years 1946-1950, taken at his last abode at 12 Mercer Street in Princeton, NJ. The photographs are one of only six printings in existence. They are usually housed at the entrance to Caltech’s Board Room in Millikan Library in Pasadena, California.

Einstein was a visiting scientist at Caltech during three winter terms in the early 1930s. A second installation presents nine large panels that incorporate collages of original documents relating to Einstein’s activities while at Caltech, including newspaper clippings, photographs with distinguished scientists, visits to Mt. Wilson Observatory, to Palm Springs, and to the movies – with Charlie Chaplin.

Einstein’s interests and passions ranged widely. He played the piano and the violin, and had wide-ranging correspondence with major figures in European and US cultural life. A third installation presents a selection of archival documents, images, and texts on music and musicians.

Albert Einstein (1879–1955), one of the foremost scientists and public figures of the 20th century, revolutionized our views of time and space, matter and light, gravitation and the universe. The Einstein Papers Project is engaged in one of the most ambitious scholarly publishing ventures undertaken in the history of science. The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein provides the first complete picture of Einstein’s massive written legacy. So far, 12 volumes of Einstein’s writings and correspondence have been published, covering the first 44 years of his life and more than 3000 documents.

The California Institute of Technology, founded as Throop University in 1891 in Pasadena, California, and renamed the California Institute of Technology in 1920, is a world-renowned science and engineering research and education institution, where extraordinary faculty and students seek answers to complex questions, discover new knowledge, lead innovation, and transform our future.

    1. Is there any way that those of us who did not buy tickets to this opera can still see the exhibit. I had to think long and hard about which operas to see this coming season, I decided on others, specifically on "Thais," "The Magic Flute, " and on "A Streetcar Named Desire." That's all that my budget will permit this season. Yet, I 'd love to see this exhibit. Is there any way that can be done? Thank you.
