Painter Georgia O’Keeffe and photographer Alfred Stieglitz exchanged thousands of pieces of paper between 1915-1946. Married in 1924, the pair initially exchanged love letters, yet later correspondence documents the ebb and flow of their romantic life. In several letter exchanges, O’Keeffe and Stieglitz include other encapsulations—pressed flowers, ribbons, feathers, and photographs. This micro-exhibition explores the animacies given to these “epistolary travelers” and the fantasies of travel, feelings of desire, and love of place embodied by them.
