"The ARMORY SHOW at 100: Modernism and Revolution"/2013
Edited by Marilyn Kushner, Casey Nelson Blake, Kimberly Orcutt/New York Historical Society, 2013

The 1913 Armory Show is remembered as a turning point in the history of American Art and culture. Marking its centenary, this groundbreaking publication offers fresh perspectives on this seminal event. Organized by a small group of American artists and presented in the huge space of the 69th. Regiment Armory in New York City, this ambitious project (officially known as the International Exhibition of Modern Art) brought together some 1,400 American and European works. It introduced the American public to European avant-garde painting and sculpture by artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. The popular response and media sensation, as well as the deeper critical debates inspired by the show, made it one of the most important exhibitions ever held in the United States.

This outstanding interdisciplinary volume includes thirty-one contributions by eminent scholars across diverse fields, and offers an unprecedented breath of coverage, re-examining the 1913 exhibition and its historical and cultural context. It draws on contemporary developments in music, literature, and early film to evoke the wider social, political, and economic climate of the time. Over 350 carefully chosen illustrations reflect the richness of the show, shedding new light on the artists represented, and vividly evoking the public's response to the works and how the media responded to this pivotal and legendary exhibition.

Appendices document the works in the 1913 exhibition and a selected bibliography covers the show itself and its key figures. With its range of stimulating and diverse points of view and fresh research, The Armory Show at 100 illuminates a key moment in art and history for America and the World./New York Historical Society/D.
