Abstract (English)

Discussing work by 15 international artists, three essayists examine the theme of tourism in contemporary art. Lee sets the stage for this artistic inquiry into the influence of the tourism industry. Higa writes on the motif of artist as traveller, and Casely questions colonial sites and the notion of souvenirs.
