‘Madame Song is a name that everyone interested in the roots of contemporary visual culture needs to know.’

Suhanya Raffel, Museum Director, M+

Madame Song: A Life in Art and Fashion tells the remarkable story of Song Huai-Kuei (1937–2006), the artist, businesswoman, and fashion impresario better known as Madame Song. In a life that spanned some of the most significant changes in the history of her native China, Song succeeded in traversing political, social, and artistic boundaries to connect East and West and transform China’s cultural landscape forever. A friend of writers, artists, fashion designers, filmmakers, and entrepreneurs, she introduced aspects of Western culture into the country – notably as Pierre Cardin’s close ally – and helped place traditional Chinese aesthetics on the world stage.

Madame Song is a must-read for anyone interested in the recent history of visual culture and the figures who shaped it.

Also available in Chinese.
