WNYC’s Sara Fishko marks 100 years since 1913, a landmark year in global culture, through three “shocking” Modernist events:  The exhibition of modern art in New York’s Lexington Avenue Armory; the concert of atonal music in Vienna that sparked a near-riot; and Stravinsky and Nijinsky’s Rite of Spring premiere in Paris that sparked another near-riot!   Culture Shock 1913 looks at the years of change and uncertainty in the early 20th century that led artists, writers, musicians and thinkers to find dramatic new forms of expression.
