Both Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo were formidable figures in the world of art. Aside from being artists, they were icons for the feminist movement and have museums to their names. They first met in 1931 in New York and developed a formative friendship with one another, which involved letter writing and meetings in Mexico or America. Frida was nearly half the age of Georgia. This conversation focuses on their friendship and their image as both artists and icons.
Georgia O'Keeffe made a huge effort to avoid being called a "woman artist" instead of "artist". Her husband, the famous photographer Alfred Stieglitz, did the opposite to promote her - it was important to talk about "women's art". Is there such a thing? Is "women's art" made by women or about women?
Kahlo and O'Keeffe had a number of things in common. One of these commonalities was their shared experience of sickness and poor health, which they would in turn transform into art. They also focused much of their work on women, their bodies, and their emotions. We can't say they had been inspired by each other's works, but there was so much more in common between New and "Old" Mexico that can help us open a dialogue about women's art. Lastly, these two artistic giants evolved over the years to become more than just artists. They became icons.



This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
