Loss of Innocence: Paris and New York in the Early 20th Century, The. The International Exhibition of Modern Art of 1913 offered to the American public its introduction to the avant garde art of Europe. Informally called the Armory Show because it was held in a military armory, this exhibition attracted huge crowds encouraging a wide range of criticism and viewpoints. Critics labeled the Cubist works primitive and hard to understand, while there was grudging respect for the cleverness of the compositions and their intellectual control. The most radical American artist was John Sloan of the Ashcan School while, Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase became the key work of the exhibition. Lecturer: Wanda Corn (Stanford Univ.). Dist.: Chip Taylor Communications. 1998. 60 min. Video/C 7278 from Media Resources Center, Library, University of California, Berkeley.
