FÊTE CHINOISE: A WEDDING AND EVENTS SHOWCASE | 婚禮與藝術展覽
Fête Chinoise was hosted at the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto on Saturday November 14th, 2015.
A counter-culture art experience, Fête Chinoise engages both the audience and producer in exploring the “new Chinese.” This exhibition explores the way we approach tradition in weddings and social gatherings, which plays a significant role in our personal lives. Invited artists and designers will imagine, without bounds, what century-old traditions might look like today in a fashion-forward and sophisticated society. In a compelling series of 9 spaces, guests will enjoy curated food and beverage pairings, delicately seasoned with nostalgic music, as they walk through an enchanting gallery-styled experience.
The symbolic meaning of tradition is simultaneously personal and public, allowing us to feel connected and to make connections. Tradition has the power to weave together thousands of years. This exhibition allows an audience interested in the Chinese culture to experience and learn about Asian-inspired hospitality, beauty, fashion, and art. Fête Chinoise will inspire souls in search of meaning with a refreshing and relevant opportunity to engage their cultural roots.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the MON SHEONG FOUNDATION, a Chinese-Canadian charity supporting community wellness and cultural heritage.
