Members get early access! Be among the first to see this one-of-a-kind exhibition.
Members are invited for a first look at this groundbreaking exhibition of two icons of Modernism, Georgia O’Keeffe and Henry Moore. Over 100 paintings and sculptures trace their artistic development, exploring their investigations of bones, stones, internal/external forms of flowers and seashells, and landscape, as well as Surrealist concepts such as the pairing of objects and metamorphosis. This exhibition unites the work of these artists for the first time, and re-creates their studios in the Museum with their original contents of found objects, tools, and furnishings. Visitors will be able to explore their working practices, and see how these humble objects inspired some of their most important artistic creations.
O’Keeffe and Moore is on view at The San Diego Museum of Art from May 13 through August 27, 2023, and will then travel to the Albuquerque Museum and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated catalogue with original research and contributions from leading international scholars that can be purchased at The Museum Store.
The Members’ Preview will be held on Friday, May 12, from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Docent-led tours will be available at 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Timed entry tickets are required for this member benefit event.
