Abstract:

"Confronting Modernity: Art and Society in Louisiana examines how the conflicts and benefits of modernity's nationalizing influences were reflected and resisted by the state's artists in the first half of the twentieth century. In Louisiana, such change not only produced the turbulent politics of the Huey Long era but also provoked debate over new ideas on art and social roles for artists." "Including over seventy-five images, Confronting Modernity explores how Louisiana's struggles with America's rush to modernize mirrored battles for autonomy happening between artists and governments across the country."--book jacket.
