BMW Art Car with Artist Jeff Koons - Web Exclusive

Feb 3, 2010

Since 1975, artists from around the world have turned BMW cars into art, signifying a particular period, through the Art Car program. In ‘07, the last project was revealed with Olafur Eliasson’s “Your Mobile Expectations: BMW H2R project.”

Across the globe many BMW Art Cars have been exhibited in museums including the Louvre, the Guggenheim Museums and the Shanghai Art Museum. They have been displayed at the BMW Museum in Munich and many went on a world tour throughout Asia, Russia, Africa, India, the US and Mexico.

If you haven’t seen them in person, we recommend doing so! This week, BMW has just announced that a new BMW Art Car will be started by famous artist Jeff Koons. This will mark the 35th anniversary of the program. The Koons BMW Art Car will be revealed later in the year. Details of the model and preliminary design will be announced soon. Koons will join an illustrious group of artists that include Andy Warhol, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Robert Rauschenberg, and Alexander Calder – each of whom has made a unique artistic statement about the appearance and meaning of cars.
