A rectangular patch of sand in Central Park may be the last place you’d expect to find a gleaming “Star Trek”-style spacecraft. But an art pavilion that resembles just that will make a temporary landing there this fall. The art pavilion will occupy Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield from Oct. 20 to Nov. 9. Called Mobile Art, the structure itself was designed by the renowned London architect Zaha Hadid and will occupy the Rumsey Playfield, midpark at 70th Street, from Oct. 20 to Nov. 9. (It is Ms. Hadid’s first New York building, albeit temporary, and has already made stops in Hong Kong and Tokyo and is headed later for London, Moscow and Paris.) Yet beyond its artistic mission, the pavilion is a provocative advertisement. Chanel, the fashion brand, commissioned Ms. Hadid to create the traveling structure to house works by about 15 hot contemporary artists. Each was asked to create a work that was at least in part inspired by Chanel’s classic 2.55 quilted-style chain handbag, so named because it was first issued in February 1955.

Richard Johnson - Page Six - A HEAD rolled at 303 Gallery in Chelsea after an employee failed to recognize designer Marc Jacobs . "He's a big art collector and he came in looking scruffy and homeless," said an insider. "A low-level employee was disturbed to see this guy walking around and asked him to leave. [Jacobs] left without a whimper. When the owner, Lisa Spellman, found out, she fired [the clueless staffer] on the spot." Spellman told Page Six that Jacobs has been to the gallery and an employee was fired, but not over Jacobs.
