In 1929, Georgia O’Keeffe and Rebecca Strand left their homes and famous photographer-husbands to travel to New Mexico in search of artistic independence. O’Keeffe was established by that time but often felt constrained by the artistic circle around Alfred Stieglitz. Beck Strand was trying to find her way as a painter in the shadow of Paul Strand’s growing success and in a community that seemed to have room for only one woman artist. Strand had a little-sister relationship with O’Keeffe, often dressing and wearing her hair like her better-known friend. During the 2 summers they spent in Taos, O’Keeffe provided Strand with the support she needed to develop an independent artistic voice and a medium—painting on glass—that she could call her own. For Strand, who settled there permanently in 1933, Taos offered an environment that suited both her swashbuckling public persona and her delicate imagery. Join us tomorrow, Sunday March 18 at 2:00 pm for a lecture with Carol Troyen, the Kristin and Roger Servison Curator Emerita of American Paintings from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In this talk, Troyen shares how, for both artists, the Southwest offered a space where women artists could flourish.

To our followers in Spain-“Esther Ferrer. Intertwined Spaces” is now on view at Museo Guggenheim Bilbao. One of Spain’s leading pioneers of action art, Ferrer considers performance to be the “art that involves time and space with the presence of the audience—an audience that is made of participants rather than viewers.” Most of the works in this exhibition have never been shown before, and will be activated in special ways through performances and interactions with visitors.
