Drivable Art

by Laurie Pressman

The Institute of Contemporary Arts in London partnered with BMW to bring Art Drive, an installation of BMW’s Art Car Collection, to London for the first time. Started over 35 years ago, when French auctioneer and race car driver Hervé Poulain invited his friend Alexander Calder to design a car that married artistic excellence to “an already perfect object”, Art Drive now features designs from 16 of the world’s best-known artists. Created for various reasons and causes, designs contributed by Alexander Calder, Ken Done, Frank Stella, David Hockney, Jeff Koons and others display a wide range of artistic interpretation and certainly add a great dose of color excitement and vibrancy to these powerful driving machines.
