Georgia O’Keeffe
April 20 – August 08, 2021
Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum, Madrid

The museum is presenting the first retrospective in Spain on Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986). Through a selection of approximately 80 works visitors enter the pictorial universe of a creative figure considered one of the leading representatives of 20th century American art.

The exhibition offers a complete survey of O’Keeffe’s career, ranging from the works produced between 1910 and 1920 that made her a pioneer of abstraction to her celebrated flower paintings and views of New York, which led to her recognition as one of the key figures in modern American art, and culminating with her paintings of New Mexico that arose from her fascination with the landscape and cultural mix characteristic of that remote region.

In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
