In conjunction with the opening of our autumn exhibition Crowning Glory: The Beauty of Ladies' Ornaments from Asia and Europe, we are pleased to invite Dr. Sandy Ng, author of the essay “Adorning The Self - Feminine Enchantment and Social Changes in the Life of the Modern Woman” published in our current exhibition catalogue, to give an introductory talk to mark the new season of talks. The lecture will focus on the changing life of the Modern Woman in the early 20th century in China, and the challenges that they face in terms of self-adornment. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity of viewing some of the objects discussed in the essay during the lecture.
