In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the International Exhibition of Modern Art at Manhattan’s Sixty-Ninth Regiment Armory in February 1913, Sheldon Museum of Art presents “Modern Madness: The Armory Show Revisited,” an exhibition of the art that introduced Americans to European modernism. The 1913 exhibition instantly produced controversy: students publicly burned copies of the artwork on display and politicians inveighed against the artists’ morality, all the while salacious newspaper stories supplied months of coverage.
