Société Anonyme By Anger, Jenny
The Société Anonyme, Inc., Museum of Modern Art, was an international avant-garde exhibiting society that ran from 1920 to 1950. Founded in New York by Katherine Dreier, Marcel Duchamp, and Man Ray, the Société sought to educate America about modern art. During its existence the Société organised some eighty-five exhibitions, eighty-five public programmes, and thirty publications. Primarily educational, the Société did not sell art, although it effected introductions among interested parties.
