will be exhibited in Central Park (Rumsey Playfield, midpark at 70th Street). The structure in which the art is housed was designed by Zaha Hadid.

The 20 contemporary artists involved in this project include Sophie Calle, Sylvie Fleury, Subodh Gupta, Blue Noses, Yoko Ono, Y.Z. Kami, Yang Fudong, Wim Delvoye, Tabaimo, Stephen Shore, Soju Tao, Pierre & Gilles, Nobuyoshi Araki, Michael Lin, Loris Cecchini, Lee Bul, Leandro Erlich, Fabrice Hyber, David Levinthal, and Daniel Buren.
The Chanel exhibition in Central Park will be free; however, it is advised to book timed tickets through chanel-mobileart.com, the website containing all you need to know about the exhibition.
