Trendy Exoticism

Exoticism is currently a strong trend in art and design. And I have mixed feelings. I'm fascinated by painted faces and expressive mask from all corners of the world. I am drawn to the unfamiliar. At the same time, I agree with Alden Jones definition of exoticism as the representation of one culture for consumption by another. What do you think?
