Bringing together museum directors, curators, and scholars in art history, folklore, history, and anthropology, Exhibiting Cultures engages in debate over meaning and representation that have accompanied and driven museums' efforts regarding multiculturalism. The contributors represent a variety of stances on the role of museums and their function as intermediaries between the makers of art or artifacts and the eventual viewers.
