As the key organizer Arthur B. Davies pronounced while standing in one of the 1913 Armory Show’s galleries: “New York will never be the same again.” The 1913 Armory Show not only made a huge impact on the masses of passive viewers, but also on the American artists, many of whom took in European innovations such as Cubism for the first time.

The earliest work in the exhibition is a watercolor of the seaside town of Dieppe in Normandy from the mid-1880s. Whistler, although deceased by the original 1913 Armory Show, was included in the exhibition by organizers who hoped to establish a historical trajectory for modernist directions in American art, which is exactly what this exhibition attempts to rematerialize. The show is dominated by the works of the organizers, including examples by John Sloan, William Glackens, Walt Kuhn, Jonas Lie, Ernest Lawson, George Bellows, George Luks, Guy Pene du Bois and Jerome Myers. The exhibition proceeds to the modernist inclinations of Agnes Pelton, Marsden Hartley, John Marin, Oscar Bluemner, and Joseph Stella, before zooming fifty years into the future to a fully abstracted painting by Paul Burlin from 1963.

Amongst the approximately 300 artists included in the 1913 Armory Show were 50 female artists, and this 2023 exhibition highlights the artistic contributions by Bessie Potter Vonnoh, Abastenia St. Leger Eberle, Ethel Myers, and an extremely rare painting by Edith Dimock.
