Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol were influenced by early 20th-century European modernists such as Pablo Picasso. This lecture demonstrates the connections between European and American art through the 20th century.
This world premiere retrospective of Oscar de la Renta’s work celebrates the life and career of one of fashion’s most influential designers. The exhibition includes more than 130 pieces produced over five decades, and is presented in collaboration with the house of de la Renta and the designer’s family. These garments are organized into thematic sections: early work; Spanish; Eastern; Russian; garden influences; daywear and eveningwear; ball gowns and red carpet ensembles.

Sarah Thornton addresses some of the major trends affecting the art world and artists’ lives. Topics include the growth in global audiences and markets for contemporary art; the investment in artworks as a hedge against currency fluctuations; the effects of migration on artists’ careers; and the popular appeal of physical art objects at a time when much culture is being digitized into thin air.
For decades, Oscar de la Renta was the quintessential American designer, creating everything from stylish ready-to-wear daywear to the most opulent evening couture. Dressing everyone from debutantes and First Ladies to executives and rock stars, de la Renta kept pace with the ever-evolving roles of women in the west. Brad Rosenstein, program producer for the Presidio Trust, independent scholar, and curator takes us on a dazzling visual journey through de la Renta's unique blend of contemporary fashion with a timeless and ecstatic sense of beauty.
