Chanel mobile art museum set in Paris

Alright, so this is one of those days where I can’t find anything to write about. Initially I had planned to write about Anna Nicole Ziesche’s non-bifurcated diary but found no supporting images.(* Shout out to artists and designers…)

Just wanted to share about the Mobile Art museum that was thought up by Karl Lagerfeld and Zara Hadid. The building designed by Hadid is used to display artworks inspired by Chanel’s classic 2.55 handbag. Established contemporary artists include Daniel Buren, Sylvie Fleury, Yoko Ono, Wim Delvoye and many more.

Designed by Iraqi-born British architect, Zaha Hadid. (See her design concept here.)

The Mobile Art museum stopped it’s world tour when the economy was facing a downturn in 2008. How wonderful it is that they had set the Museum to be in Paris.

The new location is set as Chanel donates the Art Museum Pavilion to the Arab World Institute located in Paris.

  2. Hi Guggy! It’s not about Coco Chanel, although the artwork is a giant chanel bag. Maybe you can go check out her apartment (See article here http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=121714217). Here’s some information from the Met Museum, not in paris though.
