Currently housed in Santa Fe, New Mexico at The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and established by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage Exhibit portrays a fresh outlook for one of America’s best-known living photographers. Recognized for staged and cautiously lit portraits for Rolling Stones and Vanity Fair, Leibovitz’s Pilgrimage Exhibit displays images that were taken modestly due to her connection with the subjects.
Leibovitz traveled to Santa Fe and Abiquiu a handful of times to photograph Georgia O’Keeffe’s home and countryside at the famed Ghost Ranch. Leibovitz also visited to capture O’Keeffe’s Black Place, in the Santa Fe Museum’s vault.
While not containing people, the photographs in Leibovit’s Santa Fe exhibit have molded the viewpoint of cultural inheritance, hence the title. Visiting the homes of iconic figures, including O’Keeffe’s, she acceptable her intuitions and perceptions to lead her to connecting focuses. Her photographs express curiosity of the world by spanning landscapes, interiors, and objects that are amulets of historical existences.
Sponsored by local business and hotels, including The Inn and Spa at Loretto, this Santa Fe exhibit celebrates the current O’Keeffe display Faraway: Nature and Image, which contains artifacts of O’Keeffe’s cherished Southwest landscapes.
This exhibit is organized by The Smithsonian American Art Museum. The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is the fourth stop on a national tour of this exhibition. During the run of this presentation (February 15 through May 5, 2013) this Santa Fe exhibit will be available seven days a week, when the museum opens at 10:00 a.m. The Inn and Spa at Loretto is approximately a half mile from The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, estimating a ten minute walk through The Plaza.
