A Complete Map of the World: The Eighteenth-Century Convergence of China and Europe
February 5–May 5, 2019
This small, focused exhibition uses one of the rare prints of Ma Junliang’s map of the world, Jingban tianwen quantu, as a starting point to consider the interaction between China and Europe during the eighteenth century. The exhibition also includes Chinese eighteenth-century artworks that appropriate and reinterpret European images and techniques.
