Published in conjunction with the exhibition Port Cities: Multicultural Emporiums of Asia 1500-1900 at the Asian Civilizations Museum in Singapore in 2016, this catalogue provides deeper insight into the nature of port cities in Asia.While the time frame of the exhibition falls squarely within the four centuries of European colonialism that have shaped the maps and destinies of almost every nation in Asia, it seeks to de-emphasize colonial networks and instead encourage a more holistic approach and understanding of how specific kinds of art and artefacts travelled through Asia and evolved.
