Director and Project Curator: Catherine V. Yeh
Web-designer: Janet Liu
Co-curators: Janet Liu, Robert Murowchick, Alice Tseng, and Wen-hao Tien

Please join us for the celebratory opening of our exciting new online digital initiative, Asia at the World’s Fairs: An Online Exhibition of Cultural Exchange.The symposium features presentations on the cultural, political, and economic roles of international exhibitions through history, and an exploration of the inclusion and impact of Asian cultures at these wildly popular and influential events. We will be presenting our evolving exhibition’s first two “themes” that will focus on Asian dance and architecture at the fairs, and discuss how this online exhibition can serve as an engaging, interactive vehicle for the study of many other themes in the future.
