2013 will mark the centenary of the International Exhibition of Modern Art (the Armory Show). The exhibition, which was shown in New York, Chicago, and Boston, introduced the American public to European avant-garde art, while offering American artists an opportunity to exhibit their work outside of the few available venues at the time. In 2013 the New-York Historical Society will mount an exhibition focused on this landmark exhibition. Since the publication of The Story of the Armory Show by Milton Brown in 1963 (rev. 1988) there has been little substantial scholarship on the exhibition (with a few notable exceptions). The chairs seek fresh perspectives on this important event, including ones outside art history. Possible papers might question conventional wisdom about the Amory Show or investigate previously neglected aspects of the event, including the role of women or the effect of contemporary exhibitions and/or politics in Europe on the show's organization.
Chairs: Stephanie D’Alessandro, Art Institute of Chicago; Marilyn Kushner, New-York Historical Society; and Kimberly Orcutt, New-York Historical Society
Proposals are due on May 4 and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. For guidelines see http://collegeart.org/pdf/2013CallforParticipation.pdf.
