Georgia O'Keefe and Ansel Adams at the SFMOMA: Not So Spicy

We finally got to SFMOMA's new Georgia O'Keefe and Ansel Adams exhibit, which focuses on the friendship that sprung up between the two during a stint in New Mexico. It's supposed to display the effects of their mutually beneficial, non-sexual relationship on their respective works. Fair enough, but it's kind of a replay. The show's very similar to one a few years ago, which contrasted O'Keefe's paintings with the portraiture and photography of her husband, Alfred Stieglitz. But that exhibition actually took the plunge and embraced the sexuality of both artists, which was very sexy and risqué. This one just lightly dabbles.
