While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
The first Spanish survey of Georgia O’Keeffe, at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid (20 April–8 August), traces the artist’s career from her early abstractions of the 1910s through to her famous New York views and flower paintings, and on to the celebrated desert landscapes, peppered with ram’s skulls, that she painted from her ranch in New Mexico. Particular highlights include works from the series of aerial views O’Keeffe began painting in her seventies, when a burst of late-life wanderlust saw her fly to the four corners of the globe. Find out more from the Thyssen-Bornemisza’s website.
