The primary map on this exhibition is, surprisingly, a plate. The Nineteenth-century Arita ware with a map of Japan on it’s a sign that that is no atypical map present. As an alternative of Western cartographs, this present affords material work, steel objects and even a fan created by means of the ages by Asian mapmakers.
That is an formidable present with greater than 60 objects, created in partnership with the Embassy of France. It chooses a macro view, presenting intriguing samplers of mapmaking from China, Japan, India and the Arab world.
