ABOUT THE EVENT
An Evening with Stanford University Professor Emerita Wanda Corn
Join Wanda M. Corn for an in-depth look into the aesthetic and artistic presentation of Georgia O'Keeffe herself, beyond her artwork and before the rise of “personal brands.” This talk will explore O'Keeffe's lasting legacy through her carefully and imaginatively furnished homes and a lifetime of clothes she had sewn herself, or had custom made. It was through this meticulous attention to detail and self-presentation that O'Keeffe herself was propelled to celebrity status as an artist.
Corn recently organized the Georgia O'Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition, which was on view at the Brooklyn Museum March 3–July 23, 2017. The corresponding catalogue, written by Corn, was the recipient of the 2018 Dedalus Foundation Exhibition Catalogue Award.
