The Art Exhibit That Shocked America: 'Armory 
Show' Film Debuts in Maine
12/11/2013   Reported By: Tom Porter
A century ago, a modern art exhibition in New York City 
changed the face of art in America and shocked 
the public with its "Nude Descending a Staircase" and 
other avant-garde works from European masters and 
young American artists.  The International Exhibition 
of Modern Art in New York City - known as the Armory 
Show because it was held in a National Guard 
armory - is the subject for New England filmmaker 
Michael Maglaras's lastest film called "The Great 
Confusion," which makes its Maine premiere at a 
screening tonight in Portland.  Tom Porter has more.
