Review: Reimagining Georgia O’Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz

Between February 7th and 16th, The IceHouse on 10th displayed artwork by 18 artists from around the world. The premise of the show was to re-imagine the work of pioneering artists Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O’Keeffe — the outcome was artwork that ranged from traditional media, such as painting, to new media – including a stunning video created with drone photography. The opening event was exhilarating with the accompaniment of dance performances by Fuzion Dance – not only because of the performances themselves, but because of the way in which the audience responded. Intermittently throughout the evening, Fusion Dance performers would weave in and out of the viewing crowds, stopping occasionally to interact with a piece – each performance inspired by O’Keeffe and Stieglitz’s 30 year romance. Below are two images I was able to capture during the event; each being my personal favorite works from the show:
