La Donna che legge – the exhibition from Culture CHANEL

The books open the path of the imagination. The books reveal us a wonderful and mysterious world. The books take us in a numberous of inimaginable adventures. The books could show us another face of a fashion icon. Like this particular exhibition, La Donna che legge, at  Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice.

From September 17th 2016 until January 8th 2017, the Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice will hold the CULTURE CHANEL exhibition entitled La Donna che legge. (www.culture-chanel.com)

This seventh chapter of CULTURE CHANEL (started in 2007 and held in Moscow, Shanghai, Beijing, Paris and Seoul) evokes Gabrielle Chanel’s creative world from a totally new perspective: that of her relationship to books and reading. From Greek authors to modern poets, Gabrielle Chanel’s abundant library reveals the works that left an impression on her life and shaped her personality.

Around this central theme, the exhibition plays on analogies and visual correspondences, which highlight from a contemporary standpoint that relationship with books and writing, and in particular to poetry. Dedications, archives, photographs, paintings and drawings are nestled in and amongst a wardrobe of fashion creations that reveals, much like a library, the aesthetic vocabulary of Gabrielle Chanel, her taste for classicism and the baroque, and her love for Russia and the golds of Venice.

From September 17th 2016 until January 8th 2017, the Ca’ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art in Venice will hold the CULTURE CHANEL exhibition entitled La Donna che legge. (www.culture-chanel.com)
