Armory Show (17 February—15 March 1913). Highly influential international exhibition of over 1100 works by modern artists held in N.Y. at the armoury of the 69th Regiment. Fauvists, Cubists and other Paris-based artists received their first proper showing in the U.S.A. and the exhibition had a major impact on U.S. art and criticism. The A. S. was organized by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors and supported by the group The Eight. It subsequently moved to the Art Institute, Chicago.
