Paris Photo is a photographic exhibition held at Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles. Having been associated with the event in Paris, BMW is also supporting the LA event with the display of its BMW Art Car by Andy Warhol. The unique BMW M1 sports car was created by the pop artist in 1979, and visitors will also be able to see rare footage of the making of this work.

In addition to the car, BMW will also present a series of burlesque-style photos taken by renowned German photographer Uwe Düttmann. He used the 6 Series Gran Coupe as his subject, taking it to a Hollywood studio and private movie set outside of Los Angeles for the shoot. The 15 photographs present two models adopting signature burlesque poses, and will be seen back home in LA for the very first time.

BMW and Paris Photo celebrate the tenth anniversary of their partnership, with BMW providing a VIP shuttle service during Paris Photo Los Angeles.

For many years, the BMW Group has worked together with noted photographers from Bettina Rheims and Bryan Adams to Karl Lagerfeld. The company has been involved in the arts for more than 40 years. In 2005, at the opening of Zaha Hadid's BMW Leipzig plant, BMW donated its unique collection of commissioned photographs by Thomas Demand, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rineke Dijkstra, Candida Höfer and Thomas Struth, among others, to the Leipzig Museum of Fine Arts. When promoting outstanding young photographers, BMW has been active in providing scholarships for international artists in Germany as well as France, where residences have been set up at the Musée Nicéphore Niépce. In addition, BMW has been engaged with Les Recontres Arles, the acclaimed summer photography festival. As a long-term partner of Art Basel, Art Basel Hong Kong, Art Basel Miami Beach, Frieze London and New York as well as Tefaf Maastricht and many other fairs worldwide, BMW has taken in active part of furthering the visibility and innovative spirit of photography as an established form of artistic expression.
