Description:

The exhibition opened in September 2012 at the Montclair Museum in New Jersey, and was reviewed by New York Times writer Martha Schwendener on January 6, who wrote: “And so ‘Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico’ includes not only a number of rich landscapes, but also drawings and paintings that delve into some of the central issues and controversies of modernism. Like Gauguin in the South Pacific or Picasso with his African masks, O’Keeffe encountered tribal aesthetic and cultural traditions in New Mexico that were liberating and became integral to her work — but that also set off a complicated battle among cultures, histories and legacies.”The exhibition opened in September 2012 at the Montclair Museum in New Jersey, and was reviewed by New York Times writer Martha Schwendener on January 6, who wrote: “And so ‘Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico’ includes not only a number of rich landscapes, but also drawings and paintings that delve into some of the central issues and controversies of modernism.
