Opening on March 3, the Brooklyn Museum’s Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibition has received a grant from the Thoma Foundation to support the publication of a book that will expand scholarship and bring new perspectives to the study of O’Keeffe.

Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern takes a new look at how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona—including her clothing and the way she posed for the camera. The exhibition expands our understanding of O’Keeffe by focusing on her wardrobe, shown for the first time alongside key paintings and photographs. It confirms and explores her determination to be in charge of how the world understood her identity and artistic values.

On view through July 23 at the Brooklyn Museum, Living Modern will travel to the Reyolda House Museum of American Art and the Peabody Essex Museum.
