Museums, Modern Art, and the Shock of the New

Ahead of his time, Dr. Albert Barnes recognized certain artists’ work and value well before many of his peers. When he showcased his collection at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1923, the Philadelphia art establishment reviewed it as radical and even vulgar. Consider how exhibitions have exposed audiences to “the shock of the new” and pushed the boundaries of art as we know it. (4 classes) Register online or call 215.278.7200.
