Celebrating the Armory Show

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the revolutionary Armory Show, where Picasso's work was first introduced to American museum audiences, Gallery 391 will showcase the works in the museum’s modern art collection that were displayed at the original 1913 exhibition. This presentation will be complemented by a special online exhibition, which details the groundbreaking show’s history and legacy in Chicago, as well as a display of archival materials in the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries, opening April 23, that offers a glimpse of the museum 100 years ago.
