Culture Chanel Expo. A Superb Exhibition in Shanghai.

Posted on November 13, 2011 | | 0 Comments

“Culture Chanel” is an exhibition about the famous brand which has just opened in Shanghai. This exhibition is held with the support of the House of Chanel and is organised by Jean-Louis Froment, a well-known figure in the contemporary art and design worlds. What is remarkable, he did not divide the exhibition’s space chronologically but  through  five themes : ‘Origin’, ‘Abstraction’, ‘Invisibility’, ‘Liberty’ and ‘Imaginary’ .
