Chanel Mobile Art, Central Park, New York / Pavilion by Zaha Hadid

November 4, 2008

Until November 9, 2008, the Central Park in New York hosts Chanel Mobile Art and the Chanel Contemporary Art Container by Zaha Hadid. The futuristic pavilion designed by Prizker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid presents changing installations of works by contemporary artists from all over the world. Among the participating artists are Tabaimo, Nobuyoshi Araki, Loris Cecchini, Michael Lin, Yoko Ono, Y.Z. Kami, Daniel Buren, Leandro Erlich (VTV’s coverage of his work at P.S.1 here), Blue Noses, Sylvie Fleury, Subodh Gupta, Lee Bul, Fabrice Hyber, Yang Fudong. Mobile Art was commissioned by Chanel and conceived by the company’s designer Karl Lagerfeld. It was originally imagined as a means to mark the first appearance fifty years ago of the iconic CHANEL “2.55” quilted stitched-leather handbag.
The Mobile Art Container is sited in Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield on the East Side of Manhattan, off Fifth Avenue at 69th Street. It is open to the public through November 9, 2008.
This video provides views of the outer and inner hull of the pavilion, an exhibition walk-through and statements by Barbara Cirkva, Division President Fashion, Watches and Fine Jewelry at Chanel, and Douglas Blonsky, President of the Central Park Conservancy and Central Park Administrator.
