The Armory Show at 100: The New Art Spirit explores the role of the famous 1913 New York Armory Show on the occasion of its 100th anniversary from both an art-history perspective as well in the context of its period in United States history. The original exhibition introduced the American public to European avant-garde painting and sculpture and included works by Albert Pinkham Ryder, Childe Hassam, Paul Cezanne, Marcel Duchamp, Picasso and Paul Gauguin. This exhibition assesses the Armory Show from an art-history perspective and includes a carefully chosen group of approximately 75 works. For complete information, visit
