Georgia O'Keeffe Abstraction at the Whitney

James Kalm partakes in the press preview for this icon of American Modernism. Over twenty years in the making, this exhibition surveys the lesser known but perhaps more profound side of OKeeffes work, her abstraction. Beginning with her discovery and eventual relationship with Alfred Stieglitz in 1916, OKeeffe was thrust in to the stratosphere of the New York art scene. She was at the forefront of pursuing a type of organic abstraction that Stieglitz championed as Americas contribution to Modernism. Examples of OKeeffes paintings covering nearly fifty years of development are on view. Includes brief statements by Director Adam D. Weinberg, and the curatorial team lead by Barbara Haskell, Barbara Buhler Lynes and Sasha Nicholas.
