the famous brown trunk.

The famous designer Louis Vuitton is now facing backlash for the installation of the two-story monogrammed brown trunk in Russia's Red Square due to it being placed beside the mausoleum where Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin's was laid to rest.  The trunk was meant to house a temporary exhibit "The Soul of Travel" organized by Moscow's GUM department store, but has now been forced to be removed after public uproar.  
Everything aside,  it's a pretty amazing installation and wish there could be more art like this around the world.
