The first large exhibition of modern art in America occurred in 1913, organized by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors, and began in New York City. The 1913 Armory Show is considered one of the most important events in American Art history as it introduced many Americans used to the traditional realist style to modern art genres such as Fauvism, Cubism, and Futurism.
