Unpacking Culture by Ruth B. Phillips
Book DescriptionTourist art production is a global phenomenon and is increasingly recognized as an important and authentic expression of indigenous visual traditions. These thoughtful, engaging essays provide a comparative perspective on the history, character, and impact of tourist art in colonized societies in three areas of the world: Africa, Oceania, and North America. Ranging broadly historically and geographically, "Unpacking Culture" is the first collection to bring together substantial case studies on this topic from around the world.
