Meet the Mother of American Modernism
Georgia O’Keeffe at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario, April 22 to July 30, will be a major retrospective featuring over 100 works by the 20th-century modernist. “This partnership with Tate Modern adds to the slate of major collaborations we have established with some of the best art institutions in the world,” says Stephanie Smith, AGO Chief Curator. “Due to its depth, scope and focus on dispelling persistent clichés surrounding the work of this great artist, this will be one of the most significant exhibitions of O’Keeffe’s art ever presented in Canada.” Often hailed as the “Mother of American Modernism,” O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was born in a farmhouse in Wisconsin. She worked as a teacher in Virginia and Texas for several years, before moving to New York and later the Southwest. Nature, landscapes and still life were important themes in her work. A selection of photos by her art dealer/photographer husband, Alfred Stieglitz, will also be on view, including portraits and nudes of O’Keeffe. Closed Mondays. Adults $19.50. ago.net.
