Event Description

The late 16th and early 17th centuries coincide with a burgeoning awareness of and interest in the expanse of the globe. It was a time when cartography flourished as a form of both scientific knowledge and artistic expression across the world. Hosted in conjunction with our friends from Arader Gallery, this seminar with Prof. D. Max Moerman (Department Chair, Asian and Middle Eastern Cultures, Barnard College) compares early European maps of Japan with Japanese cartography of the same period. Hands-on viewing of rare example will cast light on culturally contingent ways of viewing and recording the world at the historically significant juncture highlighted in the exhibition Hiroshi Sugimoto: Gates of Paradise.

$40/$35 Japan Society members, seniors & students
