Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern
November 22 – February 2, 2020

This exhibition addresses how Georgia O’Keeffe proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona, using her art, her clothing, and the way she posed for the camera. Early on, she fashioned a signature style of dress that dispensed with ornamentation, which evolved in her years in New York—when a black-and-white palette dominated much of her art and dress—and then her time in New Mexico, where her art and clothing changed in response to the colors of the Southwestern landscape. There, a younger generation of photographers visited her and solidified her status as a pioneer of modernism and contemporary style icon. In addition to O’Keeffe’s paintings and clothes, the show includes photographs of the painter by noted artists Ansel Adams, Alfred Stieglitz, Andy Warhol, and others.

The Body Says, I Am a Fiesta: The Figure in Latin American Art
October 4 – March 1, 2020

Largely drawn from the Norton’s permanent collection, this exhibition addresses ideas about the body and its symbolic and societal implications in modern Latin American cultures. The Body Says, I Am a Fiesta presents paintings, photography, sculpture, and works on paper by artists active in Latin America and the United States between the 1930s and 2010s such as Diego Rivera, Ana Mendieta, Rufino Tamayo, and María Magdalena Campos-Pons. Collectively, the artworks explore differing approaches to figural representation to exemplify the universal elements of the body as well as the external forces acting upon it.

The exhibition’s title also recognizes these external factors and originates from a book of short stories and folklore by Uruguayan journalist, writer, and novelist Eduardo Galeano (1940-2015). The book, Walking Words, includes a recurrent sequence of maxims Galeano called “Windows” and his “Window on the Body” illustrates the conflicting ways institutions regard, study, exploit, and extol the human body:

“The church says: The body is a sin.
Science says: The body is a machine.
Advertising says: The body is a business.
The body says: I am a fiesta.”

Posters by Toulouse-Lautrec
Now – December 10, 2019

The Norton’s newest summer exhibition, Posters by Toulouse-Lautrec, features a robust selection of Toulouse-Lautrec printed works from the 1890s. This is the first time in 45 years the Museum has presented a Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition. The works on view are on loan from the private collection of Palm Beach resident Jan Willinger. Many of the posters were created as advertisements to publicize celebrities performing in the clubs and cabarets of the Montmartre section of Paris that the artist frequented, while others documented the daily activities of 19th-century modern life. Created using the lithographic process, Toulouse-Lautrec's posters are renowned for their bold, vivid compositions, which feature caricature-like renderings of his electrifying subjects.

The exhibition is curated by the Norton's 2019 summer interns, Louis Dzialo, Magdalena Glotzer, Allison Marino, and Sarah Ortiz-Monasterio, and runs from Aug. 2 through Dec. 10, 2019.

WHO? A Brief History of Photography through Portraiture (Part 2)
February 9 – November 26, 2019

The Norton’s new Kenneth C. Griffin Building features the first dedicated gallery – the Jodi Ann Saltzman Gallery – to showcase the Museum’s permanent collection of photography. The inaugural installation of approximately 60 works will trace the history of the medium through portraiture. Beginning with 19th-century daguerreotypes and albumen prints, and ending with 21st-century examples by artists such as Tim Hailand, Shirin Neshat, and Arne Svenson, these works examine the reciprocal influences between photography and the portrait. Works by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Julia Margaret Cameron, August Sander, Dorothea Lange, Irving Penn, Thomas Ruff, and Lalla Essaydi also will be on view.
