Modernist

In its simplest terms, modernist art purposefully departs from traditional art through utilization of innovative techniques and modes of expression. Modernist art’s ties to the industrial revolution are clearly traceable, and at the core of the form is a nearly limitless ability for artist’s to explore, challenge, and innovate. The Armory Show of 1913 in NYC blew the lid off the public’s perceptions of what was both possible and acceptable, and the rest is history.
