Ayala Museum, together with its partner international cultural institutions, is inviting scholars, students and cultural workers to a two-day symposium entitled Transpacific Engagements: Visual Culture of Global Exchange (1781-1869) to be held in its Ground Floor Lobby from March 1-2, 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.
A panel of over fourteen local and foreign experts has been invited to present their studies on this under-examined period of interaction among nations and colonies.
Complete information on the symposium organizers, speakers, and topics are available at www.ayalamuseum.org/getty2014.html.
Interested participants can enroll for a full registration fee of Php 5,200 (USD 115), inclusive of conference kit, snacks, and Ayala Museum admission. Enrollees may also opt to attend only one of two symposium dates for a single-day rate of Php 3,200 (USD 70) with the same inclusions. Students and senior citizens are entitled to a 20% discount (Php 4,100/USD 90 for full rate and Php 2,500/USD 55 single-day rate) upon presentation of valid ID.
