Mobile art in new york
After Hong Kong and Tokyo, the futuristic pavilion built by Zaha Hadid for CHANEL will arrive in New York on October 20th.
This itinerant contemporary art exhibition will open its doors to the public in the heart of Central Park, on the Rumsey Playfield, just by 70th Street. Karl Lagerfeld did not choose this location randomly. Central Park is the only gigantic natural space, where one can take a walk and breathe in a city that is dedicated to the “culture of congestion”: condensed architecture, rationalization, repetition, systematism, verticality… The flawless and organic architecture of the Mobile Art pavilion will encounter the park’s natural design and contrast with the New York architecture that comes out through the foliage.
Coincidentally, the opening of Mobile Art in New York will take place at the same time as the park's 150th anniversary. The exhibition admission is free upon request via Internet. The New York edition of “CHANEL Mobile Art” magazine will be given to each visitor.
