    what is the different or correct "Introcuction into" or "Introduction to"..I can find both in google..


    "This is a great introduction INTO contemporary art shows in some of the best galleries in Rotterdam."
    OR

    "This is a great introduction TO contemporary art shows in some of the best galleries in Rotterdam."

    Thanks!

    'To' is the normal word. 'Into' sounds unusual but not wrong.

    The prefix intro- already implies into or inwards. This makes the “in” in “into” superfluous.
