A hundred years ago, in February 1913, some 87,000 art lovers viewed the International Exhibition of Modern Art, sponsored by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors at the Lexington Avenue Armory at 25th Street.
Up for a month, the 1913 show of 1200 works, sponsored and curated by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors (AAPS), Inc., was seen by over 100,000 New Yorkers before traveling (in a smaller version) to Chicago and to Boston.
The Art Show is not only the Art Dealers Association of America's 25th annual fair but also the nation's longest running fine art fair. And The Armory Show celebrates its 15th year, as well as the 100th anniversary of the legendary 1913 Amory Show International Exhibition of Modern Art.
The 100-year anniversary of the 1913 New York Armory Show on February 17th brings new light to the history of modern art in this country and to the creation of MoMA. The exhibition's goal was to bring before the public art "usually neglected by current shows."
What does this mean? Is everything really moving online? Does this mean I'm still relevant? Am I a web series ho, indentured servant (trade for press), or a potential mogul? Should I be thinking of the Web as a serious business?
