MOMENTS | Mash-up: Wong Kar-wai x NYFW, The Met Previews China: Through the Looking Glass Exhibition

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

Last September, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that acclaimed filmmaker Wong Kar-wai would provide the art direction for its upcoming China: Through the Looking Glass exhibition. The exhibition is a collaborative project between The Costume Institute and the Department of Asian Art and explores the ongoing relationship between Western and Chinese culture—juxtaposing high fashion with traditional Chinese costume, film, and art. It’s NYFW, and with Chinese New Year just a few days away, the Met gave a perfectly timed preview of the upcoming exhibition. China: Through the Looking Glass opens on May 7th and runs through August 16th.
