The "Secret code of costume: a dialogue on the Hakka and the indigenous people costume patterns" special exhibition is waiting for your visit 展示圖 Secret Code Of Costume

     Based on the theme of "Hakka and the indigenous people costume patterns", this exhibition presents the imprint of cultural exchanges between the Hakka and the indigenous people groups. It is also the first exhibition with the theme of Hakka and the indigenous people in the Hakka Culture Museum. It is also one of the series activities of this year's "Hakka salutes the original people" organized by the Hakka Affairs Council.

     The exhibition focuses on the patterns of the costumes of the Hakka and indigenous ethnic groups. It is divided into three areas of "Hakka and the indigenous people weaving", "pattern secret code" and "endless innovation" to illustrate the traces of mutual appreciation and learning of the two ethnic groups in their long-term communication.

The topics of this exhibition include the introduction of indigenous and Hakka costumes, the cultural connotation and process aesthetics implied in the patterns, the transformation of contemporary design, etc. The exhibits include precious indigenous and Hakka traditional costumes, the reproduction of Hakka embroidery methods, and classic old photos. Among the warp and weft of weaving and embroidery of these handed-down cultural relics, we can explore the diverse appearance of the Hakka and the indigenous people group's culture and the beauty of their costume.

     Features of this special exhibition are: (1) The debut of the centennial Nanzhuang Tianmei village bellyband of the Hakka and the indigenous people embroidery skills; (2) The reproduction of indigenous costumes by Yuma Taru, a conservator of the important national "Tminun" conservation along with the Museum of Fiber Arts in Taichung; (3) Special cultural relics with important Hakka embroidery methods created by Liu Qianshao, a preserver of the national "embroidery" skills; and (4) Extended reading materials such as the survey of Taiwan embroidery techniques provided by the Bureau of Cultural Heritage of the Ministry of Culture to help the audience understand the beauty of culture through exhibits, research and old photos.

     The exhibition will be held from August 4, 2021 to February 28, 2022. To increase the exhibition’s diversity, the Hakka Culture Development Center has launched an online series of lectures, inviting experts and scholars in the fields related to Taiwan Hakka and the indigenous people culture. This includes associate professor, Zheng Huimei, curator, Li Shali, Yuma Talu, President, Ri Zhiheng and other experts and scholars to share their experience in this aspect. In addition, from now until September 4, the first 20 visitors who complete the task every day will have the opportunity to obtain a limited Hakka and the indigenous people bookmark from the special exhibition.
