The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Met is always a must see on my list. Unfortunately for me an exhibit I would have loved to see, China Through the Looking Glass, closed last week. But luckily not every thing had been removed from the galleries.

This exhibition explored the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries. In this collaboration between The Costume Institute and the Department of Asian Art, high fashion is juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery.
