Dressing for the Photographer: Georgia O’Keeffe and Her Clothes

Wanda M. Corn, guest curator of Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern 

Friday, November 22 / 6pm

Georgia O’Keeffe’s sartorial style became an intimate part of her artistic identity. She dressed like she painted, highly valuing abstraction, simplicity, and seriality. Art historian Wanda M. Corn, guest curator of the exhibition, Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern, explores the way O’Keeffe used her distinctive taste in clothes to model for photographers, creating a public persona for herself that still dominates the American imagination. This lecture is on opening night of Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern.
