May 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Transpacific Engagements: Trade, Translation, and Visual Culture of Entangled Empires (1565–1898)

This event is the third of a three-part series presented by Getty Research Institute in partnership with the Ayala Museum, the University of Edinburgh, and the Kunsthistorische Institut in Florenz—Max-Planck-Institut.
Scholars discuss the new book, Transpacific Engagements: Trade, Translation, and Visual Culture of Entangled Empires (1565–1898). The conversation explores global culture and economic exchange on the transpacific routes between Asia and the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries—an era of competition for global trade networks—and how those interchanges have made a profound impact on contemporary art and culture, especially in the cosmopolitan cities of Manila and Los Angeles along the Pacific Rim.
