Abstraction Then & Now 1913 – 2013


The imfamous Armory Show of 1913 in New York City exposed Americans, for the first time, to European paintings and scultpure without a recognizable subject. The American audience was baffled. Over the next 100 years, however, artists from around the world have embraced the idea of abstract art. Trace this fascinating topic from Vassily Kandinsky's 1913 painting Composition VII to James Turrell's recent site specific installation, Aten Reign, currently on view at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Join art historian Ann Wiklund at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art as we celebrate 100 years of abstraction, including a look at the Museum's own exhibition Akin: The Art of Nicole and Marc Katano
