The exhibition Roaring into the Future: New York 1925-35 is a pioneering exploration celebrating the Empire State as the driving force behind the creation of 20th-century modernism. From Buffalo to Brooklyn, artists, designers, and manufacturers generated avant-garde art, fashion, technology, and music that resulted in the century’s most important artistic revolution. Lori Zabar, based in New York City and working with the Museum of Art staff, is the curator of this exhibition, originated by MWPAI.
Roaring into the Future features more than 100 artworks—fashion arts, paintings, decorative arts, and video and music —including masterpieces from the MWPAI collection by Reginald… Marsh, John Storrs, and Stuart Davis. Works from museums across the state enhance this innovative exhibition, including famous photographs from the George Eastman Museum and from the Whitney Museum of American Art; dazzling jewelry from Tiffany & Co. Archives; decorative arts from Yale University Art Gallery, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum; and a Franklin automobile from the Northeast Classic Car Museum. Rarely exhibited works from galleries and private collections are also featured.
