Enter Georgia O’Keefe’s lush Hawaiian dream

Enter Georgia O’Keefe’s lush Hawaiian dream

The New York Botanical Garden’s landmark 2018 exhibition, Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i, is already one of the most talked about events of the season.

The exhibition will focus on the iconic artist’s immersion in the Hawaiian Islands in 1939.

O’Keeffe’s time in Hawai‘i, and the work that was produced there, is less well known than her iconic New Mexico scenes, and it is not a place with which she is often associated.

However, close study of the work and her correspondence during her trip reveals a deep appreciation for the beauty of the Islands and a fascination with the landscape she encountered.

This engagement with a new place—and use of her familiar compositional techniques—shows extraordinary continuity with the rest of her large body of work.

From Mod to pop Paris pays tribute Peter Knapp’s revolutionary fashion aesthetics

“It resonates like a little slap, a snapping of fingers…Knapp!” notes Paris’s Cité de la Mode et du Design on it’s latest exhibition which pays tribute to the living legend of all things fashion.

“Depending on one’s generation, he is reminiscent of Dim Dam Dom, the cult TV show of the 1960s, or of Elle magazine, and for others, he is a benchmark in graphic design or is closely associated with the New Realists. More than anything, it was the photographs that made the man. With Peter Knapp, girls take flight, futuristic silhouettes dazzle us, and designer boots jog through the streets of Paris. The time is right. The decades of the 60s and ‘70s are, in terms of fashion and in mood, synonymous with freedom and creativity. The photographer is not just a witness to this incredible era; he is part and parcel of recording this new world in pictures. Whether it was for couture houses (André Courrèges, Emanuel Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin, among others) or for magazines (Elle, Stern, Vogue…), Peter Knapp mastered the art of what was required. He accepted constraints and followed all that Paris offered in terms of innovation, sometimes even of irreverence” says Audrey Hoareau, co-curator of the show.
