Georgia O’Keeffe’s Closets: Clothes, Style, and Dressing Modern

Presentation by Wanda M. Corn, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita in Art History, Stanford University

Curator and writer Wanda M. Corn will present a lecture related to her exhibition last year at the Brooklyn Museum Georgia O’Keeffe: Living ModernGeorgia O’Keeffe’s sartorial style became an intimate part of her artistic identity. She dressed like she painted, highly valuing abstraction, simplicity, and seriality. Drawing from the clothing in her closets when she died, this lecture explores Georgia O’Keeffe’s modern use of dress to join body and art in a common aesthetic.  Corn authored the 1999 award-winning book, The Great American Thing: Modern Art and American Identity, 1915–1935 and is a leading scholar of American modernism. Her numerous awards include being the recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award in 2014 from the College Art Association, the learned society for the visual arts.

Enjoy a seated luncheon in the gardens of Coe Hall.  Lunch will be served at 12pm.  Wine, Iced Tea, Salad, Fresh Breads, and Dessert; lecture immediately following.
