BMW’s unique art exhibition will be coming to the UK for the very first time later this summer.
The collection, entitled ART DRIVE!, was initiated over 35 years ago and features old BMW cars remastered by internationally-recognised artists.
The Institute of Contemporary Arts will run the event in partnership with BMW, the Mayor of London and the London 2012 Festival.
A spokesperson for the ICA said: “Art Drive! presents an exciting opportunity to reach new and larger audiences.
“The ICA hopes to take on further projects of this type in order to extend its reach into new spaces across the city.”
The event will take place on six floors of the NCP Car Park in Shoreditch over two weeks from the 21st of July to the 4th of August.
The first BMW Art Car was created in 1975 when Alexander Calder was commissioned to design a car by his friend, Hervé Poulain. The same vehicle was later entered in the Le Mans 24-hour race.
Since then some of the greatest names in modern art have used the BMW as a canvas, from David Hockney to Andy Warhol.
Julia, Loop pH and My Beautiful City are just three of the 16 artists put forward by the ICA, the emphasis being on new talent and innovation.
