A fas­ci­nat­ing win­dow onto im­pe­rial China is opened at the Pe­abody Es­sex Mu­seum with a stun­ning ex­hi­bi­tion which fo­cuses on pow­er­ful women from the Qing dy­nasty (1644-1912). “Em­presses of China’s For­bid­den City” uses por­traits, jew­elry, gar­ments and other pre­cious ob­jects to bring hid­den sto­ries out of the shad­ows, and to show how em­presses could wield great in­flu­ence de­spite the shack­les of pa­tri­archy: they were con­sid­ered ‘moth­ers of the state’ and role mod­els for all women. The ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences. 161 Es­sex St., Salem, 978.745.9500
