The Case of “Contemporary Artists Respond to the New Orleans Baby Dolls”

(p.261) Culture-Building and Contemporary Visual Arts Practice
Walking Raddy

Ron Bechet

University Press of Mississippi

The significance of a call out for artists for the exhibit Contemporary Artists Respond to the New Orleans Baby Dolls is the opportunity it provides for artists to come outside of themselves as painters or textile designers and address their art from a different point of view. The significance of the exhibit is the opportunity to demonstrate how the community is an important part of grassroots culture and how this culture is surviving by adapting and evolving in response to contemporary conditions. The chapter offers an exploration of the unfolding of this process through the interactions of artists and those who mask as Baby Dolls.
