The 17th and 18th centuries in Europe were intense periods of travel and exploration. The discovery of new lands, new people, and new cultures  created a fascination for the “Exotic” feel all over the continent, as reflected in music, dance, visual arts, theater, and literature of the times. The  repertoire includes works by Rameau, Lully, Mozart, Haydn, and more!

Filipinos at the 1904 World's Fair: a legacy of race and empire

One of the most popular attractions at the 1904 World's Fair was the Philippine Exhibit, a 47-acre site that for nine months became home to over 1,000 people on display. Ria Unson, St. Louis-based Filipino American artist and researcher, traces the legacy of the fair as a descendant of one of those people. Learn about how the image of Filipinos constructed at the fair was a method used to gain support for American imperialism and to domesticate the immigrant workers of St. Louis.
