Munich. For Paris Photo’s second edition at the Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, BMW is proud to present the 850CSi Art Car by David Hockney. Almost 20 years after its creation in 1995 the Art Car returns to its roots in LA, the city that has been Hockney’s home town for more than 40 years. “It would be good to perhaps show the car so you could be looking inside it”, Hockney described his approach to the project. He put the idea into practice in his very own style of pop art that became as popular as Andy Warhol’s.

BMW Group is the official partner of Paris Photo Los Angeles and the night before the start of the fair will celebrate the US-launch of its BMW Art Car book. The first publication regarding the BMW Art Car Collection will be presented on April 24. The book published by Hatje Cantz is a richly illustrated catalogue of the legendary BMW Art Cars’ history.

Since 1975, reowned artists from throughout the world have designed BMW automobiles of their times, all making different artistic statements. The seventeen exhibits created for the Art Car Collection until now include works by exceptional artists such as Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Jenny Holzer, Olafur Eliasson and Jeff Koons, who has also illustrated the cover of the book. The Art Cars reflect the cultural and historical development of art, design, and technology and have been presented by major museums around the world, including the Guggenheim and the Louvre. On 200 pages with 148 pictures portraits and interviews show the motives and the approaches of the artists as well as the historical development of the collection in a descriptive way.

In its 11th year of partnership with Paris Photo, BMW once again provides the VIP shuttle service. Besides the David Hockney Art Car, BMW will display its i8, introducing a new era of sustainable performance. With its futuristic design and groundbreaking technology, the i8 is the world’s most forward looking sports car made out of carbon fiber and BMW’s first high-performance plug-in hybrid.

For over a decade now, BMW has been an active partner of the most established international art fairs including Frieze NY and London, as well as Art Basel in Hong Kong, Miami and Basel, the Berlin Gallery Weekend and TEFAF Maastricht.
