Beaux Arts Ball 2013: –ism

In 1913, an art exhibition opened in New York City that shocked the country, shattered perceptions of beauty, and shifted the American cultural landscape forever. “The International Exhibition of Modern Art” became known simply and infamously as “The Armory Show,” after its venue­, the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue. It was a show of clashing and competing “–isms:” Cubism, Modernism, Realism, Futurism, Fauvism…

On September 28, 2013, The Architectural League of New York will celebrate the centennial of this historic event with a spectacular party in the same space. For one night, an architectural installation, processional performance, and original music will coalesce in a highly charged and evocative environment to transform the Lexington Avenue Armory once again.
