EXHIBITION OPENING LECTURE

Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams: Displacement and Place in the Hawai‘i Pictures

Theresa Papanikolas, who curated the exhibition Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams: The Hawai‘i Pictures, will focus on work created in and about Hawai‘i by these two renowned American artists. She will discuss how they developed a sense of place in their work, and explore how each bypassed the visual formulas and cultural clichés being constructed at mid-century to market and describe Hawai‘i, to unmask what lay beyond the beaches of Waikiki and give form to the entirety of what each artist discovered in the islands. Lecture by Theresa Papanikolas, Curator of European and American Art at the Honolulu Museum of Art

St. Francis Auditorium, New Mexico Museum of Art, 107 Palace Avenue

$5. Members and Business Partners Free
