To celebrate the centennial of Georgia O’Keeffe‘s first official exhibition in New York, the Tate Modern is set to stage a major retrospective in the artist’s honor. The 100-plus painting show will open at the gallery’s Bankside, London location and offers an extensive look at O’Keeffe’s 60-year career.
O’Keeffe came to be known as the “mother of American modernism,” and counted a number of feminist artists such as Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro among her biggest fans. This exhibition will be a rare chance to see the beauty and skill of her remarkable paintings outside the US. The summer retrospective will reveal much more about O’Keeffe’s artistic practice and influence, moving away from the monolithic interpretation of her work.
“Georgia O’Keeffe” will run from July 6 until October 30, 2016 at the new Tate Modern, Bankside, London, SE1 9TG
