Course Description:

Few exhibitions have had as profound an influence on American art as the Armory Show of February 1913, which opened in New York City and shocked the country, changing our perception of beauty and having an acute effect on artists and collectors. The International Exhibition of Modern Art (which came to be known as the Armory Show) marked the dawn of Modernism in America. Radical changes occurred in American art as our nation’s artists, accustomed to realistic art, were introduced to the experimental styles of the European avant-garde, including Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, and Precisionism. Join us as we take an in-depth look at the Armory Show, its precursors, the genesis of the development, the show itself, and its considerable legacy.
