For the past thirty-five years, BMW has been building an art collection you can drive. The collection began when Alexander Calder was commissioned by friend and racecar driver Hervé Poulain to design a car for the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1975. Since then, BMW has invited some of the world’s top artists to use the luxury vehicles as their canvas. As part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, fifteen of BMW’s Art Cars will be on view in a parking garage in Shoreditch, with designs by Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Jenny Holzer, and Robert Rauschenberg, among others. Unfortunately, Olafur Eliasson’s temperature-sensitive ice car will not be on view (perhaps it was the focus on global warming).
