Mobile Art was designed by Pritzker Prize winning, London architect Zaha Hadid and will be installed as a temporary structure at Central Park’s 1.5 acre Tumsey Playfield (midpark at 70th Street) from October 20 to November 9, 2008. It will be the architect’s first New York building – despite its transitory nature. Mobile Art has already been installed in Hong Kong and Tokyo and will travel after New York to London, Moscow, and Paris.
Despite the cool renderings and the ‘artistic mission’ of the project as a hip nomadic gallery, Mobile Art also serves as a pop-up ad for fashion brand Chanel and it’s 2.55 quilted style chain handbag. During its urban stint the pavilion will serve as a mini-museum or gallery to showcase the curated work of fifteen contemporary artists. It is also estimated that Chanel will donate a sum “in the low seven figures” to the Central Park Conservancy as well as a “use fee” of $400,000.
