Tourists participate in numerous visual decisions rich in cultural implications. This exhibition examined issues of art tourism and cultural dialogues through works from within and outside the art world. Tourism is not only one of several approaches to travel but also the world's number one industry. In 1989, nearly 15 million U.S. citizens traveled abroad, many as tourists. From the travel brochures and maps they examine, to the postcards they send, to the souvenirs they purchase, tourists participate in numerous visual decisions rich in cultural implications. For example, tourists' large-scale purchase of some forms of traditional art - aboriginal paintings from Australia, adire cloth from Nigeria-has empowered the artists' communities both economically and politically. Expanded (6-page) announcement for World of Difference, with quotes about art and tourism.
