In 1927, Georgia O’Keeffe had her first museum show ever at the Brooklyn Museum; 90 years later, she returns. However, the focus of the exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern is not her paintings but her identity and persona as an artist. O’Keeffe consciously crafted her public image and notably resisted the erotic interpretations imposed upon her art. “The critics are just talking about themselves, not about what I am thinking,” she once said.
The Brooklyn Museum show will be a chance to look at O’Keeffe’s famed paintings through the lens of how she expressed and defined herself with fashion and photography. She was purposeful about her clothing choices, wearing such androgynous items as bowler hats, tailored suits, and sneakers. Some of these will be on view alongside intimate and striking photographs of her, taken by the likes of Alfred Stieglitz (her husband), Annie Leibovitz, and Cecil Beaton.
When: Opens Friday, March 3, continuing through Sunday, July 23
Where: Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn)
