The 1913 Armory Show, also known as the International Exhibition of Modern Art, was the first large exhibition of modern art in America. We’ll learn how the exhibition came about to tour in New York, Chicago, and Boston. We’ll also explore what American and European works of art were “modern” in 1913. The impact of the Armory Show on contemporary and future American artists will also be examined.
