From September 17th 2016 to January 8th 2017 Venice, the Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art hosts the exhibition "CULTURE CHANEL, La donna che legge".
Since its first chapter in 2007, the CULTURE CHANEL project has been realized through a collection of individual exhibitions conceived and curated by Jean-Louis Froment.
With this series, CULTURE CHANEL approaches the singular life story of Gabrielle Chanel and the House of CHANEL through each exhibition’s original theme.
This itinerary, which spans the 20th century and continues to formulate modernity today, draws its content from the roots of the culture of her time. The relationships Mademoiselle Chanel maintained throughout her life with some of the greatest creative minds of her time were crucial. Her friendships, conversations and exchanges went on to provide sustenance for her thoughts and her own creations.
Thus, each successive exhibition sheds under a new light what constitutes the foundation of a language that is universal today.
