Chanel Travelling Art Pod

The Chanel Art Pod is snap-together mobile gallery that will tour the world showing works inspired by Chanel’s padded bag. “Mobile Art” gathers the works of some 20 artists, including Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki and Yoko Ono, widow of slain Beatle John Lennon, in a flying-saucer-shaped pavilion designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid. When Hadid and Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel got together to realize their dream of a traveling museum, they named Fabrice Bousteau, editor-in-chief of Beaux Arts magazine, as the curator. The exhibition runs from Feb. 27 through April 5 in Hong Kong - it's first stop - before moving to Tokyo, New York (Sep 08), London, Moscow and finally Paris in 2010.
