Symposium: “Making American Modernism, 1910–1930”

Terra Museum of American Art (Chicago)

This symposium is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Debating American Modernism: Stieglitz, Duchamp, and the New York Avant Garde at the Terra Museum of American Art. Speakers challenged popular notions about early American modernism, examined avant-garde circles within the American art world and interactions between American and European artists, and highlighted the spirited debate that took place between the circles of Alfred Stieglitz and Marcel Duchamp in New York after World War I. This event is organized by the Terra Museum of American Art.
