Société Anonyme: Modernism for America



Société Anonyme: Modernism for America
UNITED STATES
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT  •  Yale University Art Gallery  •  Ongoing
 

This exhibition charts the development of the influential Société Anonyme and its establishment as one of the greatest collections of modernist works in America. Including approximately 200 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from the Société Anonyme Collection, the exhibition features works by such diverse and renowned artists as Josef Albers, Alexander Archipenko, Alexander Calder, Arthur Dove, Louis Eilshemius, Max Ernst, Paul Gauguin, Arshile Gorky, Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Roberto Matta, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Stella, and Jacques Villon among many others.

The Société Anonyme was formed by Katherine S. Dreier and Marcel Duchamp in order to disseminate modern art in America through a succession of exhibitions and lectures during the 1920s and 1930s that introduced the American public to European and American avant-garde artists. In 1941, Dreier and Duchamp transferred the Société Anonyme Collection to Yale University in order to continue the educational aspirations of the organization.
