Exhibition: For and Against Modern Art: The Armory Show + 100

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.

Jean-Michel Rabaté, professor of English and comparative literature at the University of Pennsylvania and Vartan Gregorian Professor in the Humanities will present “The Armory Shows: Modernity as Pathos” at 6:30 p.m. on April 5 as part of the opening celebrations.
