Learn about the significant cultural and artistic exchange in the Pacific region at the turn of the century and discover how intercontinental engagements transformed art styles and collective notions of self and others through commerce, colonization and conversion. This two-day symposium is co-organized by the Ayala Museum, the Getty Research Institute, in Los Angeles, USA and the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, Italy.

Scholarly presentations address cultural and artistic exchange in the Pacific region from the late 18th to the early-to-mid-19th centuries, and examine the ways in which engagements between the Americas, Asia, and Europe transformed art styles and meanings through commerce, colonization, and conversion.

Referencing concepts and objects circulating via Manila as they crossed the vast Pacific Ocean to final destinations in the Americas and eventually Europe, this conference traces the movements and lives of images and manufactured things such as textiles, ceramics, glassware, paintings, portable screens, and religious sculptures. Papers explore transpacific encounters and interregional exchanges, focusing on local sites of artistic production and on how cultural engagements changed and shaped collective notions of self and others.
