With a career spanning seven decades and existing outside any major art movement, any chance to see Georgia O’Keeffe’s work is worth making time for. Best known for her desert landscape and flower paintings, O’Keeffe played with observation and abstraction in her work. Curated by Samantha Friedman, ‘To See Takes Time’ aims to help viewers understand the artist. Showing until August 12 at The Museum of Modern Art, this should be on everyone’s Big Apple Agenda.
