"This innovative volume brings together museum directors and curators, art historians, anthropologists, folklorists, and historians to examine how diverse settings have appealed to audiences and represented the intentions and cultures of the makers of objects. The essays address such major issues in the politics of culture as the learned experience of everyday life is used to make exhibitions comprehensible, what happens to minority and exotic arts when they are asimilated into the hegemonic context of the `great' museums, and why ethnographic museums have been neglected in an age of museum expansion."--the publisher.
