In Goude We Trust!

If you are familiar with the stellar album artwork that helped propel pop-culture icon Grace Jones into the solar system of the music industry, then you probably know who Jean-Paul Goude is.

From film, still images, and drawings to cut-up ektachromes, Goude has built a reputation as a pioneer of experimentation over his outstanding thirty-year career in the creative industry.

The exhibit, which opened Friday at Palazzo Giureconsulti in Milan, and entitled “In Goude We Trust,” is an homage to the superb collaborative relationship Jean-Paul Goude has created over the years with the House of Chanel.

The celebrated image-maker has curated the exhibit himself, and it is divided into three sections.

The first part is devoted to his work for Chanel, ranging from his videos of Vanessa Paradis to the Chance Chanel advertising campaign. However, it will also present a very special performance of Goude’s Fire Installation interpreted for the occasion by live dancers.

Giving context to the artist’s lifelong career will be some of Goude’s most emblematic pieces, which will be showcased in the second section of the exhibit. This section will also include exclusive access to a never-before-seen installation by the artist called Notre Dame de St Mandé and the little people.

Last but not least, the exhibit will also be screening So Far So Goude, a 90mm short film which spans an overview of the artist’s career and inspirations.

The exhibition is on until the end of December.
