This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness.

This panel examines the imbrication of the avant-garde with mass-produced art in order to discern the relationships between the proliferation of images and capitalism in the advent of modern visual culture. Imitating the shock value of advertising, the avant-gardists appeal to the eye of the viewer to gain visibility in the domains of art and draw the consumer’s attention to its product, thereby revealing the profit-oriented motives of marketplace exchanges.
This interdisciplinary symposium held on the campus of Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois will explore the impact that Midwestern women artists of the 1960s and '70s had on their communities and on the evolution of Amerian art. Many of these women used their creative skills and organizational talents to address one or more of the social and political issues of their day, most notably civil rights, women's rights, environmental conditions and the war in Vietnam.
