"Little Magazines and the Visual Arts"
The arrival of modernism in the visual arts, for British and American audiences alike, is often equated simply with urban spectacles that drew critical viewers en masse - in Britain, the 1910 exhibition of "Monet and the Post-Impressionists," and in America, the 1913 New York Armory Show. This panel seeks to complicate these assumptions by considering the role that visual reproductions and verbal descriptions of art have played in shaping the conception of what we have come to know as modernism.
