Georgia O'Keeffe: Memories of Drawing

13 April - 15 June 2024
9am - 5pm (Tuesdays from 10am), closed Sundays
Free to all

A remarkable collection of drawings from the pioneering American artist Georgia O'Keeffe.

This exhibition showcases twenty-one photogravures of drawings produced by the artist between 1915-1963, reflecting the period in which O'Keeffe established herself as a major figure in American Modernism.

Although best known as a painter, drawing was central to O’Keeffe’s practice. She used drawing as a language to evoke important moments and emotions – the curve of a flower petal, a desert horizon, the wave of one's hair, or the flow of a winding road.

The works in this exhibition demonstrate O’Keeffe’s distinctive style and chart the key trajectories and motifs in her practice.

Photogravure is a printmaking process that produces etchings with the tone and detail of a photograph through exposure onto a copper plate. The exhibition includes nine prints of her earliest charcoal abstracts alongside works originally rendered in pencil and watercolour, capturing subjects ranging from the artist’s early morning excursions with her sister, to surreal still lifes of seashells, banana flowers and animal horns.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Memories of Drawings is a Hayward Gallery Touring exhibition from the Southbank Centre, London.
