Opening Exhibition Lecture » The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art

Co-curators Chad Alligood and Lauren Haynes will present an opening lecture for the exhibition, The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe and Contemporary Art. The conversation will include a look at the contemporary artists chosen.

Building on our museum’s own collection of significant works by Georgia O’Keeffe—including Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 and Radiator Building—Night, New York—Crystal Bridges has brought together more than three dozen of O’Keeffe’s most important works as the centerpiece of this unique exhibition. Alongside these iconic artworks by the mother of American Modernism, the exhibition also features artworks by a select group of emerging contemporary artists that evoke, investigate, and expand upon O’Keeffe’s artistic legacy. This exhibition demonstrates the continuing power of O’Keeffe’s work as a touchstone for contemporary art.
