See highlights from the new exhibition Ida O'Keeffe: Escaping Georgia's Shadow in a talk by DMA curator Sue Canterbury. Canterbury will discuss the life and career of Ida O'Keeffe and how she constructed an artistic identity distinct from her celebrated sibling.
The exhibition brings together approximately 50 works, including paintings, watercolors, prints, and drawings. A highlight of the exhibition will be a series of lighthouse paintings Ida O’Keeffe created in the early 1930s, which reveal the sophistication of her abstract work. Also featured will be photographs of the artist taken by Alfred Stieglitz.
This talk is part of Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art.
