Where Dragons Dwell: Symbols of Status in Clothing and Collecting

June 10, 2023 - October 1, 2023

This installation presents Chinese and Japanese garments adorned with dragon designs that the wealthy elite would have worn or collected…When Chinese emperors and the elite could not travel to sacred peaks, they would make mental journeys by viewing mountain landscapes and contemplating mountain form rocks in their collections. The rock in this installation is reminiscent of a favorite rock in the collection of Emperor Huizong (1082 – 1135) known as the Dragon Rock.
