Basel. From June 16 to 19, the Swiss edition of Art Basel offers again extensive insights into the work of over 4.000 artists, presented by more than 280 leading galleries from all over the world. As long-term global partner of the shows in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, BMW again enables the comprehensive shuttle service for VIP guests this year and hosts an art and design talk as well a reception on the occasion of the BMW Art Journey.

 

On Wednesday, June 15, a BMW Art & Design Talk will offer first insights into the design studies for the next BMW Art Car. In conversation with Karim Habib, Vice President Design BMW Automobiles, the artist Cao Fei will present her plans for the 18th vehicle of the BMW Art Car collection at the UBS Forum. The young Chinese artist – considered by international media as the most important contemporary artist of her country – currently receives great critical acclaim for her first US solo show at MoMA PS1. At the end of 2015, an expert jury, made up of notable museum directors and curators, nominated Cao Fei and American artist John Baldessari to create one BMW Art Car each.

 

In order to celebrate the very first and most recent art initiatives of the BMW Group – the BMW Art Car Collection and the BMW Art Journey – as well as the company’s centenary, BMW furthermore invites to an exclusive cocktail reception at the UBS Forum on the first preview day. At the end of May, an international jury of experts selected Abigail Reynolds (represented by Rokeby, London) from a shortlist of three artists from the Discoveries sector of Art Basel in Hong Kong. Just like a mobile studio, the BMW Art Journey can take its winners almost anywhere in the world, to make new contacts, conduct research and create new work. All artists showing at the Positions and Discoveries sector of Art Basel in Miami Beach and Hong Kong are invited to submit their proposals.

 

In addition to Art Basel's shows in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, the BMW Group also supports other art initiatives, such as Gallery Weekend Berlin and abc art berlin contemporary. The company also cooperates on a long-term basis with numerous cultural institutions and artists worldwide, supporting projects such as “BMW Tate Live” and the “Preis der Nationalgalerie”.
