«In Goude we trust!» Opening On Thursday 14 November 2019 CHANEL hosted the opening of Jean‑Paul Goude’s «In Goude we trust!» exhibition at the Palazzo Giureconsulti in Milan.
The famous “image-maker” has a remarkable long-standing creative dialogue with CHANEL, which has produced some truly exceptional works. Through these creations, and the many modes of creative expression dear to Jean‑Paul Goude, the exhibition takes the visitor to the heart of the numerous collaborations between CHANEL and Jean‑Paul Goude over the last nearly 30 years and also offers an insight into some of Goude’s personal work. Many well-known figures were treated to a first glimpse of new works by Jean‑Paul Goude, including “Notre Dame de Saint Mandé et les little people”, and “Fire Installation” interpreted by dancers who had been specially invited to perform at the event.
Among the 300 guests were present prominent Italian figures from the world of art and culture such as the famous designer Barnaba Fornasetti, architect Paola Marella, the director of Abbonamento Musei, Simona Ricci, art project manager, Marcella Ferrari, the president of ACACIA association Gemma De Angelis Testa and French writer and literary critic Patrick Mauriès – representatives from the Municipality of Milan such as Filippo Del Corno, Cultural Advisor and the model and influencer Gabrielle Caunesil.
