Gabrielle Chanel was well-known for her love of art and for supporting the artists of her day. CHANEL NEXUS HALL has inherited this spirit, presenting a wide range of exhibitions, and spring 2021 will mark a new chapter in its activities.
Inspired by Gabrielle Chanel, Shirai Kaiu, who wrote the popular manga series, The Promised Neverland [published by Shueisha in “Shūkan Shōnen Jump”], and its illustrator, Demizu Posuka, have collaborated once more to produce a new work. Manga has become recognized worldwide as a unique form of Japanese culture and CHANEL NEXUS HALL will employ its unique viewpoint to present it in an exhibition that will represent a new departure for its activities.
*The exhibition will be held in Kyoto as part of the Kyotographie international photography festival in September 2021.
*During the exhibition, a special display will appear in the show window on the side of Marronnier Street in the CHANEL Ginza boutique.
