This event has ended.

Katherine Dreier (1877–1952) was an artist and collector who played an early and essential role in generating American interest in and acceptance of modern art. Together with Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, she founded the Société Anonyme, an organization designed to support and generate awareness of modernist art; the group promoted new artists by arranging exhibitions to introduce audiences to their work and develop their reputations among galleries and collectors. She was friendly with Hilla Rebay (1890–1967), artist, art collector, and the founder and director of the Museum of Non-Objective Art (now the Guggenheim Museum). This salon will focus on the ways these two women—alongside many others—inspired and in some cases built the institutions that make up the New York art world.

Salon led by John Angeline, Art and Design History, Parsons The New School for Design.
