International Print Center New York presents 1913 Armory Show Revisited: the Artists and their Prints, opening in IPCNY’s gallery at 508 West 26th Street, 5th floor on March 23, with an opening reception on March 27, 2013. This exhibition examines prints by artists from the 1913 Armory Show, including work by the American organizers such as Walt Kuhn and Arthur B. Davies. Several of the original prints in the 1913 show will be on view, as well as many by artists who were represented with paintings or sculpture. We are viewing this important historical event through the lens of fine art prints; both European and American artists will be included. This selection of prints will illustrate the modernity that was such a revelation to the American public at the time of the first exhibition.
Artists in the show include: George Bellows, Pierre Bonnard, Georges Braque, Mary Cassatt, Paul Cezanne, Arthur B. Davies, Edgar Degas, André Derain, Marcel Duchamp, Raoul Dufy, Paul Gauguin, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, Augustus John, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Walt Kuhn, Marie Laurencin, Aristide Maillol, John Marin, Henri Matisse, Edvard Munch, Jerome Myers, Frank Nankivell, Walter Pach, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, Maurice Prendergast, Odilon Redon, Ker-Xavier Roussel, John Sloan, Félix Vallotton, Jacques Villon, Jean-Édouard Vuillard, Abraham Walkowitz, Max Weber, Marguerite Zorach, William Zorach.
IPCNY is grateful to the generous individuals and dealers who are loaning works for the exhibition.
International Print Center New York is a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution dedicated to the appreciation and understanding of the fine art print, from the old master to the contemporary. Prior to IPCNY’s opening, no organization existed solely to serve the needs of printmaking artists and their audience. IPCNY’s programming is composed of seasonal contemporary juried exhibitions as well as a series of special exhibitions that focus on a particular collection, technique, genre or culture. 1913 Armory Show Revisited is the sixty-eighth exhibition presented at IPCNY since the center’s founding in 2000.
