Connecting Seas: A Visual History of Discoveries and Encounters
Through April 13, 2014 | The Getty Center
Explore the ways in which non-European cultures were perceived, represented, and transmitted in the past when ocean travel was the primary means by which people and knowledge circulated. Delve into the special collections of the Getty Research Institute, featuring rare books and maps, photographs and panoramic vues d'optique, prints, and even Napoleon's monumental folios on Egypt, and trace the fascinating course of scholarly investigation and comprehension of cultures in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Connecting Seas is the first exhibition in the Getty Research Institute's newly expanded galleries.
