Next week marks the 100th anniversary of the 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art. Better known as the Armory Show, it was the first large exhibition of modern art in America. It was also the first time many New Yorkers found themselves face-to-face with the work of artists like Duchamp, Seurat, and Picasso.
Curator Barbara Haskell discusses the exhibition "Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction," on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art through January 17. The show includes more than 125 paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures as well as selections from Alfred Stieglitz’s photographic portrait series of O’Keeffe.
