Reynolda House Museum of American Art will kick off its centennial year celebrations with the landmark exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern. This exhibition explores how the artist’s modern sensibility saturated her art, her life, her homes, and her carefully fashioned public (and private) personas. Reynolda House is the exhibition’s only venue in the South.
Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern presents a completely new, highly focused, and meticulously researched perspective on the unified modernist aesthetic of O’Keeffe’s dress and art. It will showcase a number of carefully chosen paintings by O’Keeffe and photographs of her and her homes by Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Todd Webb, and Phillippe Halsman. Additionally, exhibited for the first time, her understated and carefully designed garments dating from the 1910s to the 1980s will be presented alongside key paintings and photographs of her at various points in her career.
Reynolda House sits at the center of the historic Reynolda estate, the country home of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds, and the namesake of Wake Forest University’s Reynolda campus. A University-affiliated museum, Reynolda House is recognized as a rare gem among the nation’s cultural institutions. The museum presents an exceptional collection of art by America’s most noted artists in an incomparable setting featuring masterpieces by Frederic Church, Mary Cassatt, Grant Wood, Alexander Calder, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Nam June Paik. The 33,000 square foot home, completed in 1917 and marking its centennial this year, is restored to the period of the Reynolds family, complete with original furnishings and decorative arts.
