Culture Shock 1913 with Sara Fishko

Thursday November 15 2012 • 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Overview

From The Armory Show in New York, which introduced Cubism to America, to the “Skandalkonzert” of Arnold Schoenberg in Vienna, which sparked a near-riot among concert-goers, to the legendary premiere of The Rite of Spring in Paris – 1913 was the year many have called “the first year of the 20th century.”

Fishko’s guests are Ann Temkin of MoMA, author Frederic Morton (A Nervous Splendor, Thunder at Twilight) and author/pianist Stuart Isacoff, who will play music of that year at the Greene Space grand!

Come and join the conversation about that unsettling, shocking era of sweeping change –and the not-so-subtle ways in which it mirrors our own.
