Vera Wang Celebrates Chinese Heritage and American Upbringing at China Institute’s Blue Cloud Gala

BIG IN CHINA: Vera Wang and Ron Perelman were among the honorees at the China Institute’s annual Blue Cloud gala Thursday night.
The gathering at Cipriani’s lower Broadway location in the Cunard Building was meant to center on the Institute’s commitment to advancing understanding and deepening trust between China and the U.S. Ning Yuan, chairman and president of China Construction America, and Robert Hong Xiao, chief executive officer of Perfect World Co. Ltd. were also honored, as well as New York Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wasn’t able to attend the black tie dinner.
Beforehand, China Institute chairman Chien Chung Pei, better known as “Didi,” said of the honorees, “They share the spirit and mission of China Institute to shape positive and strong U.S.-China relations through education, culture and business.”
Derek Lam also turned up to support Wang. She later told the crowd how growing up in the U.S., her parents Cheng Ching and Florence Wang encouraged her to embrace American culture, never allowing her to forget her Chinese heritage. That delicate balance was what provided her and her brother “with such a unique view of the world and a sincere appreciation for both cultures,” she said.

Painful Chinese Foot-Binding Was More Than An Erotic Practice, Study Finds

Chinese foot-binding is perceived today as unusual, gruesome, an antiquated fetish, an erotic tradition. 

For decades in China, young girls’ bones were broken and their feet tightly bond in a painful process that would eventually make them appear more desirable to men, according to historians. Their deformed feet, known as lotus feet, were tucked into embroidered shoes and viewed as delicate and dainty. It was a way to show off their social status. It was, at the time, chic.

One study, however, suggests that there was another reason girls were subjected to the practice ― and it wasn’t all about beauty or sex.

Research published in the book Bound Feet, Young Hands suggests that some women’s feet had been bound at a very young age so they could be trained to sit still for hours and help create textiles and clothing for the family.

“What’s groundbreaking about our work is that [foot-binding was] not confined to the elite,” Laurel Bossen, the book’s co-author, told HuffPost. The study, Bossen added, dispels the view that the goal was only to try to please men.

To uncover this little-known history of foot-binding, Bossen and the book’s co-author, researcher Hill Gates, interviewed over 1,800 elderly women in remote villages across China and found that foot-binding was widespread among peasant populations, shattering the belief that foot-binding was a status symbol of the elite.

All the women surveyed were born when foot-binding was still an accepted tradition. It’s unclear when the practice began exactly, but Bossen believes foot-binding in China goes back as far as 1,000 years.

“As the last generation of these foot-bound women disappears, we fortunately managed to interview many of them,” Bossen told HuffPost. “There is no other body of data based on interviews with foot-bound women that is as comprehensive as this. It was really a last chance to do it.”

The type of foot-binding practiced in rural communities was a form of discipline, the book argues. Mothers bound young girls’ feet so they would stay still and work with their hands, creating yarn and spinning thread, among other things, which families could use or sell.

“Women who bound their daughters’ feet had their own interests in controlling the labor of young girls and young women,” she said. “We reject the view that women were exempted from work, treasuring their precious bound feet and not economically important. They developed hand skills and worked with their hands throughout their lives.”

These new findings, Bossen believes, prove that women in rural areas who had bound feet didn’t get the recognition they deserved.

“Chinese women were contributing more to society than they received credit for,” she said of the rural women with bound feet. “They were making very important contributions in the form of textiles [that have] been undervalued and mostly just forgotten.”

And while this new research suggests that this painful practice wasn’t solely for men’s desire, it doesn’t make the practice any less oppressive.

Bossen explained, “It robbed young girls and then women throughout their lives of their ability to do other things, to move around and play, to have more choices. Of course it’s oppressive.”

The practice of foot-binding began to be banned in the early 20th century, though some women, like those interviewed by Bossen, kept their feet bound their entire lives. Bossen believes the stories of the women she interviewed might have gotten lost in history as their generation passed away. 

Still, Bossen and Gates’ book doesn’t deny that “lotus feet” were created to make a woman appear more desirable. Accounts written by feet-bound women in 19th century China, published by the University of Virginia, show that women often believed the tighter the foot-binding, the better the husband they’d attract. 

The research does, however, show that these women were more than just sexualized objects. They worked hard to contribute to their families and to the larger society.

“We often underestimate how important handwork was in China’s pre-industrial economy,” she told HuffPost. “The intense pressure on women to work with their hands, to spin, weave, sew, and stitch cloth, bedding and textile products for their families and for sale has gone unrecognized.”

Their research, Bossen added, aims to look at the whole woman and not just her bound feet.

“Somehow, people have been so fascinated by the feet that they ignored the rest of the woman and what she did,” she said.

“It’s very rare to find people who notice the role of handwork in the lives of foot-bound women or who ask these elderly women what work they did when they were young girls.”

Warren Buffett Reveals Longstanding Love of Chinese Suit Maker

HONG KONG – Steve Jobs had Issey Miyake black turtlenecks. Warren Buffett has Trands suits.
Earlier this week, the American investor may have confessed that he’s “baffled by retail” but there was a time when he actually thought of venturing into the fashion business.
A long-standing love affair with suits made by Chinese company Dalian Dayang Trands had the Berkshire Hathaway chairman and chief executive officer “thinking of opening up a men’s clothing store.”
In a segment that aired on CNBC earlier this week, the 86-year-old businessman fielded a question from a viewer: “How many suits do you have at home?” The viewer estimated that the famously frugal investor, who still lives in his original Omaha, Nebraska home, had about five in his closet.
“He would be right except for the fact that I met a woman in Dalian, China many years ago, Madam Li,” Buffett answered.

He went on to describe his 2007 encounter with Li during a visit to the northeastern Chinese city. Li sent her staff to surprise Buffett at his hotel and to take his measurements so that she could gift him some suits. The move worked and he’s been a fan ever since, even getting

Chinese Photographer Ren Hang, Who Suffered From Depression, Dead at 29

HONG KONG –  One of China’s most talented young photographers, Ren Hang, has passed away.
WWD has reached out directly to Ren Hang’s studio. The news was confirmed by several who worked with him.
According to Taschen, who published the Beijing artist’s work, the 29-year-old took his own life on Thursday.
The book publisher also posted on Instagram: “Taschen is devastated by the death of Chinese photographer Ren Hang (1987-2017), a self-taught master of surrealistic, startling, and beautiful pictures, censored in his homeland, feted across the globe, and at the pioneering forefront of a gender inclusive world.”
Eli Klein of the Klein Sun Gallery also paid tribute saying: “Today we mourn the loss of Ren Hang, a talented and rising young photographer who passed away well before his time. @kleinsungallery was honored to host his solo exhibition last year and sends our heartfelt condolences to all of his loved ones.”
The controversial young artist, who had been arrested multiple times in his homeland and had his often sexually provocative work censored, appeared to struggle with depression. In a foreboding Weibo post on Jan. 27, he wrote: “Every year my wish is always the same: Die earlier.” He quickly followed it up with another post saying: “Hopefully this year

Borderless Economics: Chinese Sea Turtles, Indian Fridges and the New Fruits of Global Capitalism


Acentury ago, migrants often crossed an ocean and never saw their homelands again. Today, they call – or Skype – home the moment their flight has landed, and that''s just the beginning. Thanks to cheap travel and easy communication, immigrants everywhere stay in intimate contact with their native countries, creating powerful cross-border networks. In Borderless Economics, Robert Guest, The Economist''s Business Editor, travels through dozens of countries and 44 American states, observing how these networks create wealth, spread ideas and foster innovation. He shows how: * Brainy Indians in America collaborate with brainy Indians in India to build fridges and 0 houses * Young Chinese study in the West and then return home (where they''re known as sea turtles), infecting China with ideas that will eventually turn it democratic * The so-called brain drain – the flow of educated migrants from poorcountries to rich ones – actually reduces global poverty *America''s unique ability to attract and absorb migrants lets it tap into the energy of all the world''s diaspora networks. So despite its current woes, if the United States keeps its borders open, it will remain the world''s most powerful nation indefinitely. With on-the-ground reporting from Asia, Africa, Europe and even Idaho, this book examines how migration, for the all the disruption it causes, makes the world wealthier and happier.

Jon Bon Jovi Singing Ballad In Chinese Does NOT Give Love A Bad Name

You probably know Jon Bon Jovi as the larger-than-life rock star whose vocals have filled stadiums. But we betcha didn’t know he’s actually pretty darn good at Chinese, too. 

(Or at least singing in Chinese).

Yes, the 53-year-old artist sang Teresa Teng’s popular ballad, “Yue Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin,” or “The Moon Represents My Heart.” The singer, who recorded the song for Chinese Valentine’s Day — which took place last week — manages to sing it beautifully in Mandarin, while somehow maintaining his very recognizable Bon Jovi flair. 

Listen to the artist get in touch with his softer side and sing an emotional rendition of the song. Then, notice that your jaw has probably dropped to the floor because you were unaware he was capable of singing in Chinese. 

Seriously, what can’t he do?

Chinese Style, Served Over-Easy

2015-05-08-1431094008-7734327-Slide4.jpg

The Met Costume Institute’s latest show merits a much more thoughtful wander than the crowds will allow. But do not feel that you’ve missed a learning opportunity.

The day after this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala in New York, the carcass of a massive, white tent still dominated the monumental staircase up which Rihanna had paraded her much parodied gilded-egg scramble. And that mixed-up metaphor may well be the most accidentally iconic of an exhibition that scores a lot of easy points, but misses so many more important others.

First things first: this year’s show, China: Through the Looking Glass, is huge, visually stunning and will be a tremendous success. The beauty of haute couture gowns interspersed throughout the Met’s impressive Chinese art galleries is breathtaking.

The show merits a much longer and more contemplative wander than the crowds will allow, if only to fully take in the workmanship of the pieces on display. That said, do not feel you’ve missed a learning opportunity because, as is all too often the case with fashion, all that brilliance remains on the surface. You’ll get the point of it from a simple walkthrough (in fact, you probably know it already).

That is quite a letdown from an exhibition whose opening description sets up complex themes of “subordinated otherness” between the “binaries” of a “simulacrum” West and an “authentic” East, only to drop them in favor of a “positivistic examination” of cross-cultural dialog. Translation: This is all very complicated so we’re just going to show you some Chinese looking dresses.

Despite liberal use of the word “interpretation” to describe the exhibits, there is a lot more application and appropriation going on here. And some comic misinterpretation. A Christian Dior gown stands in a room of ancient poetry on calligraphic tablets but is decorated in characters copied from a letter about a stomachache. As Fashionista reminds us, “When it comes to cultural appropriation and accidental racism, the fashion industry doesn’t have the best track record.” To be fair, the many Chinese visitors snapping selfies on the members-only opening day showed no discomfort.

As you read the texts on the gallery walls, the curators clearly see the intellectual shortcomings at hand, but it seems they are content to simply point them out rather than do the harder work of critiquing them and coming up with something new and enlightening.

For example, in a room dedicated to blue-and-white pottery, the contemporary gowns’ hourglass shapes bear an uncanny likeness to the ancient urns that inspired them, well beyond just replicating the illustrations. Some, such as 2011 piece by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, are even made of pottery shards. It is woman as utilitarian vessel; it is woman as fragile tchotchke; it is woman as luxury object; it is woman confined, broken and reconstructed. It rolls back two centuries of Western feminism with a silent scream about the upper-class subconscious. But apparently it merits no discussion.

2015-05-08-1431093554-9578015-06ChineseExportVaseRobertoCavalliandMcQueengowns.jpg

Perhaps that is too heavy a political point for an art museum to make. But there are others, more pressing and relevant to both the exhibition and the world today, which also go implied yet ignored. The Chinese luxury objects on display are centuries, even millennia older than their Western counterparts. It is a reminder to developed, Western countries that the exalted status they have enjoyed for over a century is not a birthright.

History will be quick to remind us that China, India, and the Middle East had rich and refined cultures while Europeans were still struggling through the material and intellectual poverty of the Dark Ages and before the existence of the Americas was even known to them.

Today we debate whether it is possible for a fashion or luxury brand to come from China. The heritage of these goods is French, Italian, and British, n’est-ce pas? But not so long ago, the luxuries these countries enjoyed – silk, spices, carpets, jewels – came from what we now call emerging countries. Europeans were just the ones who turned up with the gold (and eventually the guns) they used to get them.

And the exhibition is strongest in the last galleries, which display the work of contemporary Chinese designers, such as couturier Guo Pei, who spent two years making Rihanna’s royal yellow robes. So the cycle may well come around again.

2015-05-08-1431093694-1850886-Slide2.jpg

Which brings up another point: The demand for fashion and luxury drove the earliest waves of international trade, cultural exchange, exploration and empire-building, along with the less noble consequences of war, colonization and the slave trade. So this demand, more than simple conspicuous consumption, is a driver of change – either good or bad, depending on our intentions and level of self-awareness.

The title of China: Through the Looking Glass refers to the distortions that occur in stylistic cultural sampling and romanticized misunderstanding. But we know about that already. And like chateau-inspired McMansions, we associate it with cluelessness and bad taste. “This exhibition is not about China per se,” says the Met, “but about a collective fantasy of China.” But showing us our own fantasy is not enough. A show like the Met’s should not succumb to the same naivety.

We count on it to meet us behind the looking glass and bring us out the other side with a better understanding of things. Instead, we are left wondering: Despite this celebration of cultural dialog, how thick is its accent? To what extent does it let superficial enthusiasm pass for real understanding? That is evidenced by the reaction of many Chinese commentators on both sides of the Pacific, left howling by celebrities’ clumsy effort to reference the show’s theme at the opening gala the night before.

The real “through the looking glass moment” is fashion’s consistent ability to genuinely believe it is connecting with an issue while completely missing the point. As the museum says: “…designers are driven less by the logic of politics than by that of fashion, which is typically more concerned with an aesthetic of surfaces rather than the specifics of cultural context.” It is fashion being so smug that it doesn’t even know how much it doesn’t know. And that holds fashion back.

Fashion should be fun, glamorous and all the things this show is. But in the end, the show has too much Vogue and not enough Met. You will come out stimulated, but not smarter. Which is ok if one of the world’s leading cultural institutions is happy to reduce itself to a theme park and leave the more important show on the red-carpet outside.

Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China

Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China


As a traditional healing art that has established a contemporary global presence, Chinese medicine defies categories and raises many interesting questions. If Chinese medicine is “traditional,” why has it not disappeared with the rest of traditional Chinese society? If, as some claim, it is a science, what does that imply about what we call science? What is the secret of Chinese medicine’s remarkable adaptability that has allowed it to prosper for more than 2,000 years? In Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China Volker Scheid presents an ethnography of Chinese medicine that seeks to answer these questions, but his ethnography is informed by some atypical approaches. Scheid, a medical anthropologist and practitioner of Chinese medicine in practice since 1983, has produced an ethnography that accepts plurality as an intrinsic and nonreducible aspect of medical practice. It has been widely noted that a patient visiting ten different practitioners of Chinese medicine may receive ten different prescriptions for the same complaint, yet many of these various treatments may be effective. In attempting to illuminate the plurality in Chinese medical practice, Scheid redefines-and in some cases abandons-traditional anthropological concepts such as tradition, culture, and practice in favor of approaches from disciplines such as science and technology studies, social psychology, and Chinese philosophy. As a result, his book sheds light not only on Chinese medicine but also on the Western academic traditions used to examine it and presents us with new perspectives from which to deliberate the future of Chinese medicine in a global context. Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China is the product of two decades of research including numerous interviews and case studies. It will appeal to a western academic audience as well as practitioners of Chinese medicine and other interested medical professionals, including those from western biomedicine.

Toasted Sushi Nori, Chinese 7 Foods

Toasted Sushi Nori, Chinese 7 Foods


Ever since we began harvesting indigenous seaweeds in 1971, our friends and customers have been asking for a good, clean nori sheet. After unsuccessfully trying to make a rough and tough sheet from our local porphyra species, we learned that the Chinese were making excellent nori sheets and started selling those. Several years ago we traveled to China and started the process of organically certifying nori through the Chinese branch of OCIA International, our seaweed certifier here. Now, with the help of a third party importer, we are pleased to support the Chinese nori farmers and provide you with a premium product that we have, so far, been unable to grow ourselves. Use Maine Coast Nori to make traditional sushi or California rolls – or invent your own filling for this low-fat, nutrient-dense food wrap. The production and export of this nori involves no human rights abuse and, to the best of our knowledge has no connection with the Chinese government. Certified Organic but not a Raw Food.

Gender in Chinese Music

Gender in Chinese Music


Village ritualists, international classical pianists, pop idols, and professional mourners — whether they perform in temples, on concert stages, or in TV shows, Chinese musicians continually express and negotiate their gendered identity in relation to those around them. Gender in Chinese Music draws together contributions from ethnomusicologists, anthropologists, and literary scholars to explore how music is implicated in changing notions of masculinity, femininity, and genders “in between” in Chinese culture. Individual chapters cover music cultures relating to diverse practitioners across space and time, from courting couples in China’s heartlands to ethnic minority singers from the borderlands, and from Ming-period courtesans to contemporary karaoke hostesses. The book also features interviews with musicians, music industry workers, and fans talking about gender. With its wide-ranging subject matter and interdisciplinary approach, Gender in Chinese Music will be the major resource for researchers and students interested in this important subject. Rachel Harris is a senior lecturer in ethnomusicology at SOAS, University of London, and author of several books on the music of Chinese Central Asia. Rowan Pease is a senior teaching fellow at SOAS, University of London, and editorial manager of The China Quarterly. Shzr Ee Tan is a lecturer in music at Royal Holloway, University of London, an active musician in the UK and Singapore, and author of Beyond “Innocence”: Amis Aboriginal Song in Taiwan as an Ecosystem.
