A few months back, we told you about Chanel’s Mobile Art Museum, a traveling pavillion made to house art exhibits, and we’re excited to say that last week it touched down in Tokyo, Japan. The museum houses original works paying homage to the iconic Chanel quilted purse and includes works by: Blue Noses, Daniel Buren, David Leventhal, Fabrice Hyber, Leandro Erlich, Lee Bul, Loris Cecchini, Michael Lin, Nobuyoshi Araki, Pierre & Gilles, Sophie Calle, Soju Tao, Stephen Shore, Subodh Gupta, Sylvie Fleury, Tabaimo, Wim Delvoye, Yang Fudong, Yoko Ono, and Y. Z. Kami. The most important work of the show however is the actual museum designed by Zaha Hadid. The museum looks like it’s touched down from outer space and is very curvy, and features a loop design. It’s the first travelling museum of its kind. Future stops for the museum include New York, London, Moscow and Paris. If you are in one of these cities, or are close to one, this is a definite must see!
