Exhibition: Mabel Dodge Luhan & Company-American Moderns and the West

Mabel Dodge Luhan & Company: American Moderns and The West focuses on the life and times of one of the early 20th century's most significant cultural figures: Mabel Dodge Luhan (1879-1962). Luhan brought modern art to Taos, New Mexico, putting Taos on the national and international map of the avant-garde and creating a "Paris West" in the American Southwest. From 1918-1947, Luhan influenced legions of European and American "movers and shakers" to find Northern New Mexico's physical and cultural landscapes-new aesthetic, social, and cultural perspectives on modern life.
The exhibition will include 150 works of art and ephemera produced by the visual, literary, and performance artists who came to Taos at Mabel's behest. The works of Andrew Dasburg, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Ansel Adams, Agnes Pelton, and Georgia O'Keeffe will be displayed in conversation with the works of Pueblo and Hispano artists who inspired their modernist sensibilities.
Co-curated by a dynamic scholarly team, MaLin Wilson-Powell and Dr. Lois Rudnick, this project offers a transformative and multi-disciplinary contribution to the evolution of American Modernism as it expanded westward.
