The Art Institute of Chicago launches the first exhibition in its Modern Series—a string of themed displays that will showcase pieces from the museum's collection of modern art. The first installment, Shatter Rupture Break, explores art produced during the early years of the 20th century by the likes of Salvador Dalí, Robert Delaunay and Kurt Schwitters. The exhibit demonstrates how advances in technology and the outbreak of World War I had a profound effect on artists living during the era.
