Denver — Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer, brings a trove of newly identified photographs by the groundbreaking artist to Colorado, starting this Sunday, July 3. This exhibition, organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) with the collaboration of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, reveals a new aspect of the modernist artist’s career through nearly 100 photographs, as well as several paintings, drawings, and related ephemera.
This groundbreaking presentation of O’Keeffe’s photography is included with general admission and free for visitors 18 and under every day, thanks to the museum’s Free for Kids program.
O’Keeffe’s artistry has inspired volumes of scholarly analysis, exhibitions, and portraiture. This exhibition finally sheds light on her work as a photographer. The presentation is the culmination of three years of research and analysis by Lisa Volpe, Curator of Photography at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Eric Paddock, Curator of Photography at DAM, is the local curator for this exhibition.
Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer is the latest in the Denver Art Museum’s Summer 2022 lineup that also includes Modern Women/Modern Vision: Works from the Bank of America Collection, featuring photography by the 20th century’s most renowned women photographers; Age of Armor: Treasures from the Higgins Collection at the Worcester Art Museum, highlighting armor throughout the centuries; as well as Carla Fernández Casa de Moda: A Mexican Fashion Manifesto, presenting haute couture fashions with a focus on ethics and social change.
