“It takes courage to be a painter. I always felt I walked on the edge of a knife.” — Georgia O'Keeffe
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience the beautiful innovative art of Georgia O’Keeffe, a trailblazing figure in American modernism. Making its only stop in North America at the AGO, Georgia O’Keeffe features more than 80 works of art capturing the essence of her deeply personal connection to the landscape, architecture and nature that inspired her iconic style.
A major retrospective of the art and legacy of this profoundly influential artist, the exhibition examines O’Keeffe’s relationships with renowned photographers of the time including Ansel Adams, Paul Strand and Alfred Stieglitz. Stunning views of New Mexico by Adams, as well as nudes and portraits of O’Keeffe by Stieglitz, are additional highlights of this breathtaking artistic journey.
The exhibition is timed-ticketed and AGO Members are offered free admission and exclusive previews in the days leading up to the exhibition's public opening. Photography is not permitted in the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition.
The exhibition is organized by Tate Modern in collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario and Bank Austria Kunstforum.
