Shanghai was established as a treaty port in the nineteent h century and became a major modern metropolis by the 1920s\, internation ally known as &ldquo\;the Paris of the East.&rdquo\; &nbsp\;\n\nThe city& rsquo\;s identity was deeply associated with its women and their fashion. Their dresses and manners textured the city&rsquo\;s modern life and bec ame the emblems of Shanghai modernity. Beyond the glamour\, the changing styles of female clothing and the controversial images of modern women al so manifested the social and political anxieties in the transitional peri od that ushered in new gender roles.\n\n The exhibition\, guest-curated by scholar Mei Mei Rado\, features 12 exquisite outfits from 1910s to 1940s on loan from the China National Silk Museum in Hangzhou &ndash\; on view for the first time in the United States &ndash\; and three dresses from prominent private New York collections.&nbsp\;They will be presented alon gside over 50 accessories\, posters\, lifestyle magazines\, and period im ages. Focusing on the unique Shanghai allure represented by women of diff erent roles and their dresses\, the exhibition examines how Shanghai wome n initiated styles that expressed their identities in relation to the cit y and how each archetype of femininity came to be associated with a certa in characteristic Shanghai look. The show will describe styles from vario us corners of Shanghai society &mdash\; the student\, socialite\, courtes an\, movie star\, artist\, dancing girl\, and housewife &mdash\; to recon struct the social and cultural pulses behind the many facets of Shanghai glamour.\n\nCuratorial Advisor: Dorothy Ko\n Guest Curator: Mei Mei Rado\n Exhibition Design: Rebecca Shea SUMMARY:Shanghai Galmour: New Women 1910s-1940s URL:/en/events/2013/04/26/shanghai-galmour-new-women-1910s-1940s/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
