Dear Members and Friends,
Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture, the blockbuster couture exhibition at Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), is about to end in a few daysâ€¦
If you havenâ€™t already seen it yet, or if you want to discover more, donâ€™t miss the opportunity to join us for a free private guided tour conducted by an ACM docent exclusively for the Swiss Association of Singapore.
Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture presents a dialogue between historical and contemporary Chinese design, juxtaposing embroidered masterworks by Chinaâ€™s foremost couturiĂ¨re with Chinese artworks from the Asian Civilisations Museum. Guo Peiâ€™s dramatic, sculptural gowns reflect influences from growing up in Beijing surrounded by Chinese imperial art and mythology. Her creations express her personal take on contemporary fashion and aesthetics. Exploring her impact on everyday lives beyond the runway, the exhibition presents several of Guo Peiâ€™s intricate Chinese bridal gowns â€“ including two directly inspired by artworks in the ACM collection. Serving as points of encounter and departure, the ACM objects invite contemplation on how Guo Pei references and reimagines Chinese art and tradition for China and the world today.
