Encounters: The Meeting of Asia and Europe, 1500-1800 International Conference

This conference complements the Major V&A exhibition Encounters: The Meeting of Asia and Europe, 1500-1800.

The conference will develop themes from the exhibition, examining different aspects of the encounter between Europe and Asia in the early modern period. Day 1, Perception and Reality looks at how the meeting engendered visions of Asia and Europe in the imagination of the other. Day 2, Interaction and Exchange, provides new perspectives on the cultural and material dialogue between East and West.

The conference will be of special interest to art historians, historians, conservators and museum curators, as well as scholars studying the exchange between Europe and Asia from 1500 to 1800.

There is a discount price of £92 for those booking both days of the conference at full rate. The exhibition book can be obtained at a 10% discount by those attending the conference.
