On Cultural Influence


"On Cultural Influence" offers a unique perspective of international viewpoints on the changing cultural landscape. This collection presents over thirty papers delivered at three apexart international conferences--Wroclaw, Poland (1999), Rio de Janiero, Brazil (2001) and Honolulu, Hawaii (2004). The continuing conference series is intended to promote an open dialogue among notable cultural practicioners, including curators, writers, historians, arts managers, artists, sociologists, and others, about various cultural concerns and how they change from each gathering to the next and differ among the participants. The wide range of perspectives and wealth of examples and references to artistic activity around the world will provide an unusual resource for teachers and students of art, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies as well as readers interested in diverse views of culture in a changing society.
