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.

Enormous flowers, luscious color, airy compositions full of light, and clean forms that border on abstraction—these familiar hallmarks of Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings remain a significant influence for artists working today. The presentation in this exhibition of several O’Keeffe’s most-loved and important artworks gives viewers an entry point into the work of this group of emerging artists, selected for their unique explorations of some of O’Keeffe’s most powerful themes, including flowers, feminine forms, city and desert landscapes, and the delicate interplay between abstraction and realism.

This exhibition introduces viewers to a new generation of American artists, and allows for a fresh look at O’Keeffe through the lens of contemporary art.

This exhibition is organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and was curated by Lauren Haynes, Curator of Contemporary Art, Crystal Bridges; and Chad Alligood, Chief Curator of American Art, The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.

After its presentation at Crystal Bridges, this exhibition will travel to two additional venues and will be accompanied by a full-color catalog including essays by exhibition curators and leading scholars.
