Friday, September 29, 2006
Session IV: Modernism and Anti-Modernism
Moderator: Joann Moser, Smithsonian American Art Museum senior curator

This three-day symposium looked at American art in a global context—from circum-Atlantic migrations in the eighteenth century to European training and travel in the late nineteenth century; from the export of U.S. culture and media in the twentieth century to the impact of immigration and globalization on the nation's visual arts in the new millennium.
