Mapping the World, Perspectives from an Asian Cartography

Mapping the World: Perspectives from Asian Cartography is a showcase of rare historical maps from across Asia. It explores different world views and mapping traditions, political and cultural spheres of influence and the exchange of cartographic knowledge between cultures of East and West.


The exhibition presents over 60 cartographic treasures from French institutions such as the Musée Guimet, École Française d’Extrême-Orient and Bibliothèque nationale de France, as well as the collections from The MacLean Collection (Chicago), Yokohama City University (Japan) and Singapore institutions including the National Library and Asian Civilisations Museum, that embody the rich cartographic traditions of Asia. It is co-curated by the National Library Board’s exhibitions team and French curators Pierre Singaravelou and Fabrice Argounes.
