Abstract

Recent years saw the proliferation of qipao exhibition in Hong Kong (2016, 2013, 2010), Taipei (2013) and Singapore (2012). All of which have seemingly different curatorial directions. What was transmitted through these qipao shows? Beyond the Chinese bodily appearance, what did the dress convey in different Chinese regions? This essay will commence with a brief history of the dress, followed by discussion of exhibitions in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taipei addressing the relation of Chinese women’s bodily appearance to their identities and perceived locality.
