EXHIBITS AND COLLECTIONS1880s textile collection of the Bendigo Chinese Association
The Bendigo Chinese Association imported costumes from Canton (Guangzhou) for the Easter Fair in 1882. More pieces were imported for the 1892 fair, and early in the twentieth century, the dwindling Beechworth Chinese community donated items dating from the 1870s. These historic processional costumes combine to create a rich and diverse cast of symbolic characters that originate from the highly theatrical world of Chinese opera.
