Orange County Gets A New Hermès
Beginning on Sunday, Hermès’ state-of-the-art transportable screening room, H BOX, touches down at the Orange County Museum of Art as part of the spring exhibition Moving Image: Scan to Screen, Pixel to Projection. With Chanel’s Zaha Hadid-designed Mobile Art Pod indefinitely grounded and Prada’s Rem Koolhaas-created Transformer still undergoing construction in Seoul, where it will remain, Didier Fiuza Faustino’s H BOX is your only chance to experience the gallery-as-art-phenomenon on American soil. As for the work inside of it, H BOX artistic director Benjamin Weil has selected videos by ten international artists, Matthew Buckingham and Cliff Evans included. First unveiled in Paris in 2007, the collapsible H BOX traveled through Europe and Japan before landing in California. It will make its home in the OC through September 6.
