The Vorticists: Rebel Artists in London & New York, 1914-18 

When: Sept. 30-Jan. 2 2011
Vorticism was a short-lived but pivotal modernist movement spanning the years of WWI; an abstracted figurative style combining machine-age forms & the energetic imagery suggested by a vortex, Vorticism emerged in London when the staid English art scene was jolted by the advent of French Cubism & Italian Futurism.
