Opening Reception | Monday, March 6th 4:00-5:30

This original, curated exhibit introduces modern Chinese dance history through issues of ethnicity, nation, gender, and class. Learn the stories of individual dancers and choreographers, and explore relationships among dance, popular media, and global exchange during a time when China and the United States had little direct cultural contact.

The exhibit features materials from the University of Michigan Library’s Asia Library, the largest resource of materials for Chinese dance research in North America. Materials on display include digitized photographs, performance programs, archival materials, books, and videos.

Join us for an opening reception in the Hatcher Gallery on March 6 at 4pm.
