|The Art Exhibit That Shocked America: ‘Armory
Show’ Film Debuts in Maine
|12/11/2013 Reported By: Tom Porter
A century ago, a modern art exhibition in New York City
changed the face of art in America and shocked
the public with its “Nude Descending a Staircase” and
other avant-garde works from European masters and
young American artists. The International Exhibition
of Modern Art in New York City – known as the Armory
Show because it was held in a National Guard
armory – is the subject for New England filmmaker
Michael Maglaras’s lastest film called “The Great
Confusion,” which makes its Maine premiere at a
screening tonight in Portland. Tom Porter has more.
