The Armory Show at 100: The New Art Spirit
October 18–February 23, 2014
The Armory Show at 100: The New Art Spirit explores the role of the famous 1913 New York Armory Show on the occasion of its 100th anniversary. The original exhibition introduced the American public to European avant-garde painting and sculpture and included works by Albert Pinkham Ryder, Childe Hassam, Cézanne, Duchamp, Picasso and Gauguin. This exhibition at the New-York Historical Society includes a curated group of approximately 75 works, all mounted with an eye toward contextualizing the importance of the 1913 show for American arts.
