Beyond the world fairs in London, Paris or Chicago, numerous smaller, ambitious exhibitions took place in provincial cities and towns worldwide. This volume takes a novel look at the exhibitionary cultures of the period 1840-1940. By examining the motivations, scope, and impact of lesser-known exhibitions in, for example, Australia, Japan, Brazil, as well as a number of European countries, the volume opens up new angles in the way the global phenomenon of a great exhibition can be examined through the prism of the regional.
