ON 28 APRIL, AN EXHIBITION DESIGNED BY ZAHA HADID WILL INAUGURATE THE MOBILE ART PAVILION, A NEW ARTS VENUE INSTALLED IN FRONT OF THE INSTITUT DU MONDE ARABE.
Created by Iraqi-born British architect Zaha Hadid for CHANEL in 2007 and commissioned by Karl Lagerfeld, the Mobile Art Pavilion’s opening exhibition showcases a selection of work by the 2004 Pritzker Prize laureate Zaha Hadid, designer of some of the world’s most highly acclaimed projects.
A genuine immersion into the architect’s formal and conceptual repertoire, this exhibition of Hadid’s work is presented within its own architecture. Translating the intellectual and physical into the sensual and using a wide range of media, the Mobile Art Pavilion unfolds through spatial sequences which engage the visitor in unique and unexpected environments.
The Mobile Art Pavilion, donated by CHANEL to the Institut du Monde Arabe, will allow the institute to further develop its cultural programmes in the field of contemporary creation.
Exhibition generously supported by exclusive sponsor, Fayat Group.
