Hermès $pacecraft Theater

The high-art trend of launching mobile museums into the wild is gaining steam with the latest "artcraft" coming in the form of the H Box. The structure was produced by fashion brand Hermès and designed by architect Didier Fiuza Faustino, who calls his work "a nomadic object informed 1970s space landing crafts."

Inside the H Box films by international creators such as Su-Mei Tse, Yael Bartana, Dora García, Judit Kúrtag, Valérie Mréjen, and Shahryar Nashat are shown. Like the Chanel Mobile Museum, the H Box easily breaks apart for transport to cities around the world. 

The next stop for the artcraft is Yokohama, Japan from September 13 to November 30.
