Dear Miss Ruthless,

We have been chasing the stories of diasporic pageant queens. There is something ruthless about their stories, something that recalls the sentimentality of Chinese culture. Allow us to paraphrase Rey Chow in writing that sentimentality is an attachment premised on adaptation and resilience. Romance that endures. We are building a community to welcome you. And really, a community is just a group of people who are capable of holding a pageant. The stage has been set.

Yours truly,
Hera Chan and David Xu Borgonjon, Curators
致無情小姐:

我們追溯華僑選美王后的故事,她們的故事如此無情,暗喻著中文流行文化濫情中隱藏的一顆狠心。文學家周蕾曾寫道,所謂濫情,是基於應變與忍耐之上的一種戀戀不捨,是一部持久的言情小說。我們的社群正在聚集,我們迎接妳的到來。也許任何一個社群都只不過是一些能舉辦選美競賽的人。舞台已佈置好,就等你出現。

祝好
