This week, we explore the Art Institute of Chicago’s exhibition dedicated to what Georgia O’Keeffe called her New Yorks—paintings of skyscrapers and views from one of them across the East River, which marked a turning point in her career. Sarah Kelly Oehler, one of the curators of the show, tells us more.

Georgia O’Keeffe, The Shelton with Sunspots, N.Y. (1926)

One of the most distinctive of all London’s contemporary art spaces, Studio Voltaire, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and has begun a fundraising drive to consolidate its future, with a gala dinner this week and a Christie’s auction later this month.

Cecily Brown‘s The Hare and Hound is one of the several works by leading artists that is currently on show in XXX at Studio Voltaire (until 16 June). A selection of works have been donated to be sold via private sales and at Christie’s—with further sales taking place at the recent gala dinner—in support of the non-profit

We talk to the chair of Studio Voltaire’s trustees and a non-executive director of Frieze, Victoria Siddall, about the anniversary and the precarious funding landscape, even for the UK’s most dynamic non-profits.

And this episode’s Work of the Week is an untitled painting from the Austrian artist Martha Jungwirth’s 2022 series Francisco de Goya, Still Life with Ribs and Lamb’s Head. Based on a work by the Spanish master in the Louvre in Paris, Jungwirth’s painting features in a new survey of her work that has just opened at the Guggenheim Bilbao in Spain.
