Asian Diva: The Muse and the Monster

July 14, 2017 - October 9, 2017

This exhibition explores the transformation of Asian popular culture during the 1960s and 1970s, a time when rapid economic development had the continent under its spell. As male actors were writing this history, the lives and voices of real women were being obscured by sociopolitical smokescreens, postcolonial experiences of the Cold War, and dictatorship. Many women shared similar experiences, regardless of location, during this period of rapid urbanization and economic growth. Here, the exhibition presents a comprehensive look at their forgotten discourse through a prism of Asian diva songs and popular cultural signals documented along trajectories inked in postcolonial modernity.

October 7, 2017 - December 23, 2017
