For and Against Modern Art: The Armory Show + 100

April 4 – June 16

/ 2013

This exhibition reunites some of the prints, drawings, and paintings from the notorious Armory Show of 1913, which introduced a stunned America to avant-garde European art. Post-Impressionism, Cubism, and abstraction seem unremarkable now, but the intensity—and polarity—of the critical reception had ramifications in the Chicago art world for decades.

This exhibition is made possible in part by generous funding from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
