Exhibition: Made in the Americas: The New World Discovers Asia

This exhibition explores the relationship between the Americas and Asia, paying special attention to the importance of the early trade routes across the Pacific, beginning in the sixteenth century with the Manila Galleons. The show will present how the importation of Asian products from the sixteenth through early nineteenth centuries influenced artistic production across the colonial Americas, blending with indigenous artistic traditions and styles from Europe and Africa. Included will be a wide range of objects, including silver, sculpture, furniture, textiles, ceramics, oil paintings, and enconchados (paintings over mother-of-pearl).
