Masterpiece Art are delighted to invite you along to an exclusive private viewing of the inspiring artist Dina Goldstein on Thursday 26th March 2020 at their gallery based in Holland Park, London...


Inspired by Chinese tradition and the evolution of international commercialism, Dina re-imagines the adored and iconic advertising posters of 1930s China.  Live models replace the girls, still sexy but far more demure than their American counterparts, the ‘pin-up girls’.  This era saw the emergence of Asian women as individuals, who began to break away from Confucius tradition that demanded total filial piety alongside crippling beauty practices like foot binding. 
However, while an expression of gender emancipation, the posters sowed seeds of a new form of exploitation: the use of the female form to sell consumer products.  The shift to this popular image of the modern woman signalled the commoditization of the everyday and deradicalization of modernity.  The accompanying imagined products relay satirical critique of our current societal realities.
