TRANSPACIFIC ENGAGEMENTS: VISUAL CULTURE OF GLOBAL EXCHANGE AT AYALA MUSEUM

Monday, February 17, 2014

Ayala Museum, together with its partner international cultural institutions, is inviting scholars, students and cultural workers to a two-day symposium titled “Transpacific Engagements: Visual Culture of Global Exchange (1781-1869)” at the ground floor Lobby on March 1 and 2, 2014.



Co-presented by the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, California and the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, Italy, the symposium will feature scholarly presentations which address cultural and artistic exchange in the Pacific region from the late 18th to the early-to-mid-19th centuries, and will examine the ways in which engagements between the Americas, Asia, and Europe transformed art styles and meanings through commerce, colonization, and conversion.

Over 14 local and foreign experts have been invited to present their studies on this under-examined period of interaction among nations and colonies.
