Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam and the Land, a touring show from the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum that opens Sunday at the Denver Art Museum, is a beautiful and subtle exhibition with new revelations, even for the most advanced O'Keeffe-maniac. Incredibly, this is the Denver Art Museum's first-ever major O'Keeffe exhibit, and it impresses in all its spare, modernistic, monochromatic glory; walking through the galleries, which hold fifty handsome O'Keeffe works, is a cleansing exercise in early modernism.
The revelations? A selection of the artist's rarely seen paintings of Hopi Katsinam (or spirit figures) is included, as well as a final gallery of contemporary Hopi works that reflects the influence of modernism on New Mexican native arts.
