Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture presents dramatic, sculptural gowns designed by Chinese couturière Guo Pei. Her creations express her personal take on contemporary fashion and aesthetics, and reflect influences from growing up in Beijing surrounded by Chinese imperial art and mythology. Serving as points of encounter and departure, Chinese artworks from the collection of the Asian Civilisations Museum are juxtaposed with Guo Pei’s works, creating a dialogue between historical and contemporary Chinese design. The catalogue invites contemplation on how Guo Pei references and reimagines Chinese art and tradition for China and the world today.
