"American Modernism Revisited:
The 1913 Armory Show "

This panel is intended to mark the centenary of the Armory Show exhibition, which many modernists acknowledge as a watershed event and yet is still often glossed over or mis-represented. To many scholars and cultural historians the Armory Show marks the moment when Modernism, apparently unknown prior to this moment, suddenly appears in America and allows American modern art to spring like Athena from the collective head of the Europeans exhibited there. This panel does not seek to diminish the importance of the European examples that were in the show but does seek to provide a fuller context surrounding the exhibition including a recognition of the modern art that was already being produced in America at the time and that was included in the show, the media and galleries that helped support these artists, a consideration of influences from the exhibition besides the oft-cited French ones, and concrete examples of the legacy of this exhibition.

Panelist: John Angeline, Professor of Art History, School of Visual Arts
Panelist: Robert C. Morgan, Critic, Art Historian, and Author
Panelist: Herbert Hartel, art historian who is an American art expert on the Armory Show
