Chanel N°5 as an “object of culture,” according to the exhibition’s curator Jean-Louis Froment, who has put together this travelling show connecting the cult Modernist fragrance to the avant-garde movements it has spanned. Works of art, photographs, archives and objects – and a fragrant garden – provide an account of the inspirations which fed the imagination and world of “Mademoiselle Chanel,” including her favourite destinations like Venice, Russia or her villa, La Pausa, or the creations of her artist, poet and musician friends Cocteau, Picasso, Apollinaire, Stravinsky, or Picabia.
Until 5 June. Noon-midnight, closed Tue. Free entry.
Palais de Tokyo, Entrance via 2 rue de la Manutention, 13 av du Président Wilson, 16th. M° Iéna. www.5-culturechanel.com
