Hong Kong. 130 leading galleries from 28 countries and territories will present a unique overview of the diverse art scenes across Asia and beyond during this year’s Art Basel in Hong Kong. The fair is taking place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from May 27 to May 29, 2022, with preview days on May 25 and May 26, 2022. As official partner of the show, BMW will again provide the VIP shuttle service. Furthermore, “Tokens From Time” a publication of BMW Art Journey awardee 2020, Leelee Chan, which is based on the experiences and impressions of her BMW Art Journey was published by Hatje Cantz and is now available online.

The BMW Art Journey is an initiative founded by Art Basel and BMW in 2015, to support emerging to mid-career artists. In a journey that took her to Mexico, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland, Hong Kong-based sculptor Leelee Chan investigated the properties and social histories of materials old and new. In Italy, she visited copper and bell foundries, old marble quarries and sculpting studios, a medieval iron workshop and late antique and medieval mosaics. In Germany, she observed the work of architectural glass and mosaic manufacturers and met with BMW designers and engineers working with sustainable, resource-efficient, and natural materials of the next generation. In Mexico, Leelee Chan met with historians, miners, and craftsmen to learn about silversmithing and obsidian artisan techniques as well as the history and socio-environmental impact of mining. Furthermore, she spoke to scientists from Switzerland and the Netherlands to get to know more about low-carbon-emission cement and mycelium, a fungus based biodegradable substance that points to a sustainable environmental future. Everywhere she went, Chan documented her experiences in vivid photographs and texts which are collected in her book. This richly illustrated volume brings together essays, documentary photographs, and works inspired by the trip to examine the core questions of Chan's project: What does it mean to be a sculptor in the current time? What can we learn from the materials of yesterday? And how can tomorrow's materials ensure our sustainable future?

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site www.dat.de.
