Uniting the realms of classic beauty and cinematic artistry, Chanel hosted the 16th annual Tribeca Festival Artists Dinner at Balthazar in New York City. Alongside the actors and actresses, the evening honored the artists who have contributed original artwork to the festival’s award-winning filmmakers.
The selection of artists and their work was led by curator Racquel Chevremont; the ten acclaimed artists invited by Tribeca and CHANEL to celebrate their fellow storytellers were Ana Benaroya, Beverly Fishman, Christie Neptune, Lisa Lebofsky, Natia Lemay, Patricia Encarnacion, Renee Cox, Sheree Hovsepian, Shinique Smith, and Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz.
Chanel has a long history with film and the stars of the time, beginning with Gabriel Chanel, the house founder, and her friendships with the likes of Gloria Swanson and other American film stars. So it is no surprise that the annual Tribeca Festival Artists Dinner hosted by Chanel had a range of notable guests from Zoey Deutch and Tommy Dorfman to Camila Morrone and Suki Waterhouse to Iman and Bethann Hardison.
Alongside the House’s long commitment to the world of film, Chanel has previously introduced many programs that have been highlighted at the Tribeca Festival Artists Dinner that celebrate and elevate women filmmakers. Now entering its 15th year, CHANEL’s partnership with the Tribeca Festival has resulted in programming such as Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program, which provides support and recognition for the next generation of women filmmakers.
