'O'Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism' showcases the iconic art of Georgia O'Keeffe, one of the most significant American painters of the twentieth century, alongside modernist masterpieces by the celebrated and pioneering Australian artists, Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith. The exhibition draws together around 30 works by each artist from the breadth of their careers and looks at their distinct visions of modernism. Kyla McFarlane, Acting Curatorial Manager, Australian Art, will conduct an illustrated lecture on these three icons of Modernism and explore how their interpretations of modernity reflect their culture and national identity.
