Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern is the first exhibition to explore the art, image and personal style of one of America’s most iconic artists. O’Keeffe’s understated and carefullydesigned garments, many never before exhibited, are presented alongside photographs and her paintings, illuminating O’Keeffe’s unified modernist aesthetic and distinctive self-styling. For more than 70 years, O’Keeffe shaped her public persona, defied labels and carved out a truly progressive, independent life in order to create her art. Her aesthetic legacy -- compact masses, organic silhouettes, minimal ornamentation, and restrained color palettes -- continues to capture the popular imagination and inspire leading designers and tastemakers of our day.
This exhibition is organized by the Brooklyn Museum with guest curator Wanda M. Corn, Robert and Ruth Halpering Professor Emerita in Art History, Stanford University.
