Since 2008 Chanel’s Mobile Art exhibition has been jet-setting from one city to another. After showing in Hong Kong, Tokyo and New York the pavilion is permanently settling down in the City of Lights.
Architect Zaha Hadid was commissioned by Karl Lagerfeld to design the UFO-like structure that toured around the world showcasing 15 artists and over 20 pieces of work inspired by Chanel’s iconic quilted handbag.

The fashion house is to donate the 7,500-square-foot container to the Arab World Institute and in early 2011 it will be installed in front of the Jean Nouvel designed museum.
The first show is scheduled to launch in March 2011 and from then on the pavilion will be used to show contemporary art exhibitions relevant to Arab culture and civilization.
