O’Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism

Enjoy this rare opportunity to see the iconic art of Georgia O’Keeffe alongside modernist masterpieces by pioneering Australian artists Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith.

Born in the late nineteenth century, the three painters came of age during the 1910s and 1920s, a time of great social and cultural transition. While they were not connected by personal familiarity or direct correspondence, they were kindred spirits, rejecting the artistic conventions of the past and forging new ways of picturing the changing world.

'Making Modernism' draws together around 30 works by each artist over the breadth of their groundbreaking careers. The exhibition is presented in partnership with the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe; Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne, and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney.
