Curated by Jean-Louis Froment, a well-known figure in the contemporary art and design worlds, the new exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, highlights the creative dimensions of the House of Chanel throughout history. The exhibition interprets Mademoiselle Chanel’s universe through her designs, her iconic pieces and her literary and artistic inspirations. Delving into her brushes with poets Jean Cocteau and Pierre Reverdy, painters Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali and composer Igor Stravinsky, 'Culture Chanel' has been developed around five themes: Origin, Abstraction, Invisibility, Liberty and Imaginary.
