Between May 7 and August 16, visitors to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art will be privy to an exhibition detailing the connection between east and west. China Through the Looking Glass is set to be one of MoMA’s largest exhibitions, and has taken nearly two years to put together. It shows guests the inspiration western designers found in all things Chinese. For example, Imperial Chinese costumes and military dress worn in the Cultural Revolution.
The title of the exhibition is a spin off from the 1871 novel “Through the looking Glass, and What Alice Found There,’ since it is focused on what one feels when they enter another world.
