Gucci Garden was conceived by Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele and features exhibition spaces curated by critic and curator Maria Luisa Frisa. Continuing her exploration of the House archive, Maria Luisa Frisa now experiments with a new approach to displaying artefacts and documents in the Gucci Garden Galleria, by introducing a series of new exhibits. To reflect the brand’s complex, multidimensional and multi-channel history and activity, these new exhibits literally hijack sections of the galleries to illustrate the ever evolving inclusive imagination of Alessandro Michele, who weaves narratives and mythologies by combining and juxtaposing his personal memories and those of the House. His is a provocative itinerary that manages to hold together the materiality of objects and the immaterial impulses of creative vision.
In keeping with the spirit of creative collaboration that Gucci Garden embraces, its restaurant – the Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura – is helmed by internationally renowned chef Massimo Bottura, whose dishes explore the deep roots of the Italian kitchen while making references to history, art and philosophy.
