The Armory Show - Then and Now

 Gallery A in the 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art (nicknamed "Armory" Show)

The International Exhibition of Modern Art (The Armory Show) of 1913 was a pivotal time in the world of art. It marked the first time that art considered to be the "modern" style was brought together and exhibited in one space. It took over a year of planning and received much public scorn from people unaccustomed and uninterested the burgeoning styles displayed like Cubism, Fauvism and Futurism.

 Currently, there is an exhibition of the same name taking place in New York at the Piers which highlights art of the 20th and 21st centuries and is primarily a venue to buy and sell. However, if you have the opportunity, it is also a chance to see works by famous and unknown artists in the same locations.
