Chanel-Art in Central Park

The Chanel exhibit is housed in Zaha Hadid's pavilion.

It's an incredible experience with sound by Stephan Crasneanscki
and narration by the wonderful actress Jeanne Moreau.

This is one of the first rooms and one of
my favorite pieces.

Tabaimo's "At the bottom"
Images are projected on the inside well, the walls are
reminiscent of the quilting of the Chanel bag and the space suggests the depth of the bag.
