Planning for a traveling exhibition, a catalog, new media interpretive materials, and public programs about the impact of trade with Asia on artistic production in North, Central, and South America from 1500 to 1800.

Asia and the New World: Global Exchange and Artistic Influence in the Colonial Americas, 1500–1800 is a major travelling exhibition and ambitious research project being organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA). Curated by Dennis Carr, Assistant Curator of Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Art of the Americas, the exhibition will be showcased at the MFA from April 6, 2014, through July 27, 2014. The MFA is finalizing plans with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to co-organize the exhibition and to serve as a second venue from September 14, 2014, to January 4, 2015. The MFA is seeking a third venue in the U.S. or Mexico. The project will include a scholarly catalogue and a range of new media interpretive materials and public programs to reach a broad audience. Audiences will come away from Asia and the New World with the understanding that the products of civilization, like the world‘s peoples, are interrelated and intimately connected.
