Waist Down Shanghai
May 18–31, 2005, Peace Hotel, Shanghai
For Waist Down Shanghai, the Peace Hotel—the ground-floor lobby as well as the suite-floor lobbies and three suites each done in Chinese, American, and British styles—was chosen to display the skirts. As a beacon of Shanghai’s transformative progress and rich history, the Peace Hotel is one of the city’s most popular landmarks. Presented within this unique site far removed from a conventional art venue, the show explored a new way of communicating an exhibit to visitors.
