Recent deadlines kept me from blogging for over a week. Then I read about the Mobile Art Pavilion for Chanel by Zaha Hadid Architects and felt the urge to blog.
It's a museum that travels. It was in Hong Kong last month and will next go to Tokyo. Made from fiber-reinforced plastic on a steel support, the pavilion is highly experimental and innovative.
It features the artwork from 20 contemporary artists who are inspired by Chanel. The artists include Nobuyoshi Araki, Yang Fudong, Yoko Ono, Lee Bul, Michael Lin, Tabaimo, Subodh Gupta, Y.Z. Kami, Soju Tao, Sophie Calle, Loris Cecchini, Wim Delvoye, Leandro Erlich, Sylvie Fleury, Pierre & Gilles, Stephen Shore, Blue Noses, David Levinthal and Stephan Crasneanscki.
