For two weeks only the ICA takes over the NCP Great Eastern Street car park in Shoreditch with ART DRIVE! – an opportunity to view BMW’s unique collection of ART CARS for the first time in the UK. The collection, initiated over 35 years ago, consists of BMW cars transformed into artworks by leading international artists, using the form of the car as their canvas. This pop-up exhibition, based in the ‘brutalist’ NCP Car Park on Great Eastern Street, sees the ICA work with exciting emerging names in design from the east end to create a unique project, including Julia, Loop.pH and My Beautiful City.
ART DRIVE! BMW ART CAR COLLECTION artists: Alexander Calder, Sandro Chia, Ken Done, Ernst Fuchs, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Matazo Kayama, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Esher Mahlangu, Cesar Manrique, M.J Nelson, A.R Penck, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol.
