The exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986), on view at the Musée de Grenoble from November 7, 2015 to February 7, 2016, marks the first exhibition in France of works by this esteemed American painter. Although long established in the United States as an icon of twentieth-century art, O’Keeffe remains little known in France. Creating dialogue between the artist’s paintings and the photographs of her contemporaries, including Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and Edward Weston, this retrospective shares with French audiences her singular and fascinating œuvre, situated at the confluence of the American realist tradition and the European avant-garde.
This event, part of the annual Semaine des cultures étrangères, organized by the Forum des instituts culturels étrangers à Paris, brings together the exhibition’s curators, Guy Tosatto and Sophie Bernard, along with Didier Ottinger of the Centre Pompidou, curator of Edward Hopper at the Grand Palais in 2012-2013, for a discussion of this remarkable American artist.
This event is free and open to the public and will be conducted in French.
