I won’t even try to paraphrase the awesomeness that is the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art. I will say it is there, it’s amazing and its almost gone. Make sure you head out and see it!
Here is the description:
Enormous flowers, luscious color, and desert landscapes. Georgia O’Keeffe pioneered revolutionary ways of visually interpreting the world, leaving a lasting legacy for generations of viewers and artists. The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art brings together a significant group of O’Keeffe’s works as the centerpiece of an exploration of her continued force as a touchstone for contemporary art. Alongside paintings and sculpture by this founder of American modernism, viewers encounter works by emerging artists that evoke and expand upon O’Keeffe’s enchanting artistic language.
The hallmarks of Georgia O’Keeffe are seen anew through their influence on artists working today. The Beyond presents a conversation between some of O’Keeffe’s most important works and the work of 20 emerging artists, selected for their individual approaches to some of O’Keeffe’s powerful themes, including flowers, bodies, still lifes, skyscrapers, desert landscapes, and the delicate interplay between realism and abstraction. The Beyond introduces audiences to a new generation of American artists, providing a fresh look at O’Keeffe through the lens of contemporary art.
The Beyond is ticketed with Candida Höfer in Mexico, large-format photographic “portraits” of 25 magnificent interiors of libraries, convents, theaters, churches, and museums throughout Mexico. Höfer’s technical mastery of composition, light, and symmetry offers viewers a glimpse beneath the surface, toward the heart and character of each place.
The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art is organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas. Support for the national tour is provided by Helen Porter and by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. In Raleigh this exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions.
