'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 Janeiro, Brazil (2001), and Honolulu, Hawaii (2004). The continuing conference series is intended to promote an open dialog among notable cultural practitioners, including curators, writers, historians, 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, wealth of examples and references to artistic activity around the world will provide a valuable 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.' - from the back cover
