Culture Shock 1913

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

What a year was 1913! In an exhibition in a New York Armory, Cubism and abstraction were revealed to the American public for the first time. In Vienna, audience members at a concert of atonal music by Schoenberg and others broke out into a near-riot. And in Paris, Stravinsky and Nijinsky’s new ballet The Rite of Spring burst on stage with famously inflammatory results.

Culture Shock 1913

Friday, November 30, 2012

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.
