A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Georgia O’Keeffe

Centre Pompidou / Paris / Art

Georgia O’Keeffe’s career took her from Wisconsin to Chicago, from New York to New Mexico, a trajectory that is on view at the Centre Pompidou. The first female artist to show at MoMA, O’Keeffe’s capture of the essential, in strong form and color, immediately set her apart. And while her mighty modernist depictions of flowers are said to have spearheaded feminist art in a male-dominated world, she chose not to dwell on gender. O’Keeffe’s skyscrapers, ram skulls, morning glories, and cloudscapes transcend cultural politics, offering a realm of wildness distilled. —Ariella Paradise
