These have been going since 1975 so you’ve maybe heard of them. I actually saw them in a very fancy gallery in Tokyo a few years ago but the BMW Art Car Series is currently on display in a carpark in Shoreditch. Over the years some incredible artists have painted a BMW as part of the programme including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella and Alexander Calder.
The difference between seeing them in a gallery and a carpark is dramatic but they definitely don’t feel any less special here. The way they have used this carpark is really clever, you take a car-sized lift to the top floor wander through 6 floors back to ground level, like Guggenheim NYC (!). There are 2 or 3 cars on each floor and the look fantastic under some great spotlighting. I left work onetime and happily spent an hour here lusting after the cars and enjoying myself until my battery ran out.
