'An Armory Show' is a multi-discipline project, which pays homage to 'The Armory Show' of 1913, held at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City and presented by the Association of American Painters and Sculptors. The work presented will speak to the dynamic changes that occurred in the art world in general as a result of its occurrence, and to the history of its effect on the artistic life of the Capital Region.
A salon, an exhibition within the installation, will include the work of over 30 artists from the region, including that of RPI faculty Shawn Lawson, Larry Kagan, Nathan Meltz, Paul Myamoto, and Bill Bergman.
The Opening Reception is on Friday, September 6th, from 5 to 9 p.m.
An artists' talk and gallery walk-through will begin at 6:30, during the Second Public Reception on Friday, October 1st, from 5 to 9 p.m. There will be an accompanying presentation of an installation process video and the release of the Exhibition Catalogue.
Throughout the run of the exhibition, there will also be held Musical Concerts, Dance performances, a Documentary film on the original 'Armory Show' of 1913, and related works by other artists and performers.
