Universal experience : art, life, and the tourist's eye by Ill.) Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tourism, the largest industry in the world, is a significant force in contemporary society, with far-reaching economic, cultural, and geopolitical importance. Rather than seeking to represent tourism or travel itself, Universal Experience: Art, Life, and the Tourist's Eye considers art, history, and the social construction of places, spaces, and identities from the heightened perception of the tourist. Functioning as a guide book, a reader, and a souvenir, this lavish catalogue of the exhibition presents over 275 illustrations of thought-provoking artworks as icons and as tourist sites for exploration. A wide-ranging anthology of texts presents divergent routes and avenues through which to explore the symbols and cultural conventions created, deciphered, and disseminated by an increasingly mobile, international group of artists."--Jacket

The gallery next door : artist-run spaces and the question of audience by Lynn Basa( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Artist-run galleries in neighborhoods seemingly present lower barriers to entry for the general public relative to traditional institutions, yet their audiences are still mainly limited to the art community. What is keeping more diverse populations from accessing these spaces and why does it matter? I explored these questions through audience participation studies by Pierre Bourdieu, the National Endowment for the Arts, and first-person interviews of artists with non-commercial DIY galleries in Chicago: Hume, THE FRANKLIN, Corner, Terrain. It became apparent that attendance is affected for similar reasons whether for large, established venues or for small, alternative ones. How people choose to use their leisure time to attend "high art" events breaks down roughly along lines of socioeconomic class and education level. While small art venues can use strategies recommended for large organizations to attract broader participation -such as welcoming signage, pedagogical prompts, and social events - I concluded that a significant, under-recognized value of these independent art spaces is the very fact that the artists themselves are participating members of their respective local communities, in addition to providing support to our primary audience, fellow artists
