Renowned Georgia O'Keeffe Expert to Discuss the Artist's Life in Film August 16 at the Clark

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA.- In addition to being one of America’s best-known artists since the 1920s, Georgia O’Keeffe was one of the most photographed artists of her time. Barbara Buhler Lynes will explore the filmed representations of O’Keeffe with a screening and discussion of Georgia O’Keeffe: A Life in Art, a 2002 short film directed by documentary filmmaker Perry Miller Adato. Lynes, curator of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and expert on this iconic twentieth-century artist, will present “Filming Georgia O’Keeffe: Conversation and Critique” on Sunday, August 16, at 3 pm, at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Admission to this event is free.

From early portraits by her agent and spouse, Alfred Stieglitz, to Adato’s 1977 made-for-television feature, photographs and films of O’Keeffe have established and ultimately re-created the artist’s public image and place within the public imagination. In Lynes’s commentary preceding and following the film, for which she was an associate director, she discusses O’Keeffe’s active role in crafting an artistic identity through photography and film. Due to emerging scholarship and a deeper understanding of O’Keeffe’s life and work, the artist’s representation has changed over time.

Lynes is the Emily Fisher Landau Director of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Research Center and the Curator of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her recent exhibitions include Living Artists of Distinction: Sherrie Levine, Abstraction and Moments in Modernism: Georgia O’Keeffe and Andy Warhol: Flowers of Distinction. Lynes has published extensively and influentially on O’Keeffe for the last twenty years. Her work includes the two-volume Georgia O’Keeffe catalogue raisonné and Georgia O’Keeffe and the Camera: The Art of Identity. Her publication, Georgia O’Keeffe: Museum Collections, was named Best General Art Book of 2007 by US News. Lynes has taught art history at numerous institutions, including Vanderbilt University, Dartmouth College, and Montgomery College, and lectured extensively. Lynes holds a Ph.D. in French literature from the University of California at Riverside and a Ph.D. in art history from Indiana University at Bloomington.

On view this summer exclusively at the Clark is Dove/O’Keeffe: Circles of Influence. O’Keeffe burst onto the New York art scene in 1916 and captured the imagination of people around the world, not only with incredible artistic talent, but through her bohemian spirit as well. Experience this distinctly American artist’s early works with those of modernist Arthur Dove, whom she credited as having the most significant role in the formation of her abstract works. Also on view is Through the Seasons: Japanese Art in Nature featuring traditional screens and scrolls and contemporary ceramics, emphasizing the inspirational role of nature in Japanese art.
