Georgia O'Keeffe, Black Door with Red, 1954
Georgia O’Keeffe
Sep 8 – Dec 6, 2021
Centre Pompidou
Paris, France

The first retrospective in France of Georgia O’Keeffe, one of the greatest figures in 20th century North American art, boasting some hundred paintings, drawings and photographs.

The exhibition at Centre Pompidou unveils a hundred paintings, drawings and photographs, guiding us through the artist’s career. Georgia O’Keeffe whose life spanned 1887–1998 has crossed the greatest aesthetic revolutions of the 20th century.

After being part of the advent of American modernism in the 1920’s, in the 1930’s she advocates for a strong American art refusing the ambient puritanism, and takes part in the art research impacting the country then. In the 1960’s, she becomes one of the pioneers of “hard edge” abstract painting (where transitions between colors are clear and solid).

Spending the last years of her life in New Mexico, she throws herself in meditative contemplation of desert, and creates fantastic landscapes filled with carcasses of animals, flowers, and exotic plants painted in surreal shapes and colors.

Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today.
