about this item

Port cities perfectly encapsulate a fundamental human and cultural process that has existed since time immemorial - the constant mixing of things together. Such places, and the powerful cultural dynamics that took place within and between them, reflect how people, ideas, and objects circulate, and how culture is formed, spread, and shared. Four essays and a catalogue section of stunning objects make up this profusely illustrated book to accompany the exhibition held at the Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore, from November 2016 to February 2017.
Number of Pages: 218.0
