Summary
The 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art (better known as the Armory Show) marked a turning point in the history of American art and culture. Organised by a small group of American artists and presented in the huge space of the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City, this ambitious exhibition of 1,400 works is remembered as the moment when the American public was introduced to European avant-garde art. This interdisciplinary volume includes 31 contributions by eminent scholars, re-examining the 1913 exhibition in its historical and cultural context
